Do you recommend getting an alignment after doing the CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS only?

After replacing struts/springs?

After ANY suspension adjustments/replacements?

(Could get expensive unless you do everything at once, but just curious as to the consensus on this.)
CABs=yes. Camber can change and as a result, toe could be affected.

RTABs=yes.

Struts=likely not affected but by removing the strut body, you can possibly change the camber slightly.

Springs=yes especially if different height.

Do as many components as you can together at one time. your car may/may not feel fine after getting the above components done, but unless you get it on a rack, you'll never know for sure. your tires will tell you though after some time
