Alignment after steering gear replacement?
Should I get my truck aligned after I replace the steering gear? I just got it aligned 4 days ago when I was trouble shooting my steering issue, it did need an alignment pretty bad and now it tracks great...but the steering gear is the main problem...so is an alignment really needed after a steering gear change out? Both connections on the gear are keyed...so you can't mess it up...I just can't see much getting out of adjustment by taking off the parts and bolting them back together...also the workshop manual says you can't reuse the bolts that mount the steering gear to the frame...Can't I just locktite them if I reuse them? Or should I get new bolts from a hardware store and use locktite?
Thanks in advance everyone!!
