I would say yes..anytime a suspension part is involved. Driving a little probably won't hurt much tho..If you're going bigger on the tires you might as well get the alignment after the tires are put on, no use doing it 2x...good luck and post pics of before and after.

Any time you alter the front ride height its a good idea to check the wheel alignment

No dont need too do that shackles are in the rear, since you didnt touch the front suspension you should be fine

You will need a headlight alignment.

When you alter the suspension height though.
