Yes or No??? Need help quick!!!

I'm going to have a leveling kit put on this afternoon. The guy at "We do trucks" said the kit he is putting on does not need a front end alignment afterwards. What do you guys think???

I was always told whether you raise or lower the suspension you are changing the front geometry and you should get a alignment.

I would say yes you do because you don't have the solid axle. If you don't want to spend the money just keep an eye on your tires and if you see any abnormal wear in the next 5k miles or so then you should get the alignment done.
