alignment ?

when you have ball joints done, do you need to do a alignment? i just had ball joints done and my front tires are wearing on the outer sides but my tires look like they bow in on the top

It's a good idea to have it done anytime you replace front end or steering parts. It's damn sure cheaper than new tires.

It may or may not be affected. I'm not an expert in this area by any means, but it's cheap insurance.

Get an alignment done buddy. It could be out, ball joints don't necessarly cause the alignment to go out. But a lot of things can cause the alignment to go out. Mainly the crappy roads in Michigan. My gosh we have pot holes the size of lake superior.
