In theory, yes, everything should fall back in place after the alignment. I'm not sure how "exact" the new trackbar bracket is, if will bring the axle back it's original location or if it's off a tad. Either way that won't affect anything but the looks from the axle being pushed to the side. I wouldn't worry about getting a adj. trackbar, since you already have a dropdown bracket which will get you close, if not, dead on to the original location. With the truck out of alignment your tires will have accelerated wear, but again, I wouldn't worry about it for a short amount of time. I for sure wouldn't drive any long trips, or wait more than a few days to get one. Our tires are EXPENSIVE and I'd hate to lose a couple thousand miles of tread life just because I couldn't make it to the shop for a alignment.
Bottom line is get a alignment as soon as you can, don't worry about the trackbar since you have a drop down bracket.
