Is Alignment Required After Replacing Lower Ball Joints??

Please advise whether this requires alignment after only lowers are replaced. Car is 88 560SL.

Thanks

If you know that it was properly aligned before and all you are doing is the lower ball joints, you will be okay.

To be honest...after any major front end work the alignment should be adjusted! And ball joints are major.
