Any time you mess with the suspension, the alignment should be checked, especially if you have good tires on the vehicle.

The shocks are a strut assembly, so they will change the dynamics of the rear suspension. It would be wise to have the alignment checked.

Shocks do not need an alignment, but struts do.
