Your not actually doing anything to the steering system when putting in a new swaybar, unless your really messing with things.

It is not needed,But... the stock alignment is not a performance alignment. You will get alot more out of the bar if you get a performance alignment. The stock settings that come from the factory can be way off.

Question

hmmm..Performance alignment?..thats the first ive heard that..this weekend im putting on a 20mm sway bar and P1 suspension kit..im sure I need to align the car after I install the suspension but i was just thinking of taking it to NTB to get it done or someone like them..now hearing performance alignment makes me think twice about how I get it aligned..I wish i could do the alignment myself but I have no idea how to align a car right..I think you need some sort of tool right? any suggestions? thanks!

I wouldn't do it myself. But, do a search on alignments. We just had a discussion on this where someone from whiteline gave some good info. Some negative camber, and rear toe out can make your car handle nice.
