I replaced the lower control arm on my car and I wanted to know if it is supposed to have an alignment done after the replacement of the control arm?
Do you

Good morning,

Since there is no adjustment for caster or camber, the simple answer is no.

I would suggest getting it done since I d not know why you replaced it. If it was bent from an accident then you need to have it checked to look for more damage.

Why did you replace it?

I had to replace it because it broke. I bought the car used. I assume it had to have been bent before I bought it. And it just broke finally. So I will get an alignment in case it had been in an accident or run over a curb. Thank you for your time.
