Default Alignment Needed After Lift Coils Put In?

I was wondering is it absolutely necessary to get a front end alignment after lift coil springs are put in, after the factory coil springs are taken out of a 1994 Ford Ranger's, I-Beam supsension?

YES!! Your camber is going to be wayyy off and you'll wear the outside edges of your tires down in no time. If you don't drive it much you could go a couple of days before you get it aligned, but it will need it as soon as you can get it done.

Your tires will start to wear UN EVENLY if you dont get an alignment after the coil installation
