After careful tie rod end replacement, alignment necessary?
Well, my outer passenger tie rod end is started to go and had to change it out. I loosen the jam nut ever so slightly so i can remove the tie rod end. I've also counted the number of twists it took to remove the tie rod end. Placing the old tie rod end next to the new one and they are identical length. When I place everything back on, it took the same number of twists. Then I tighten the jam nut by the same amount. The question is, do I really need to have an alignment done? I have a custom alignment and would hate to have to do it again, since it runs around $200, if it's not needed. The car tracks straight and does not pull in any funny directions.
