Raised coilovers 1.5" on fronts need alignment?

Wasn't sure if I needed to get an alignment for this adjustment

I dont think you need one if you are just raising.

Everytime you raise/lower your car, your camber and toe will change. I would get an alignment.

You should get an alignment anytime you change the ride height. Camber/caster/toe will also change when you adjust the height.
