He did mention that he didn't think anything (ball joints ?) had to be disconnected to make an alignment necessary.

I'd hate to tear up a brand new set of tires.

Thanks

Theoretically, based on the components removed/replaced, an alignment shouldn't be required. That being said, there is a charge code on the TSB for them to check and verify that nothing (alignment-wise) has changed.

I would ask to ensure that the alignment check is performed and verified. It will show up on your paperwork if completed.
