Hello Pete,

With both arms replaced, the alignment should be checked. The sway bar links should be replaced too.

What caused you to change out the arms? Did you have any noises prior to the change? IE a "ka klunk" noise when going over small ridges or bumps?

Hi,

I replaced my upper and lower control arms today. Also
the sway bar links (boots ripped) Does it need a alignment
now. It drives straight, but I noticed a little
wandering on the highway. never had that before.
