    Changing any steering or suspension componant on a car will change the alignment, Wheel alignments on a vehicle are measured in hundredths to thousandths of a degree, that;s 0.01 to 0.001 depending on your alignment equipment.
    if you change the knuckles get the alignement re-done, you will prbably have to set the toe-in again and possibly the camber. Caster should remain the same as well as SAI and toe out on turns.

    ride height will not be affected, and camber could go either way, but not alot.
    Just throw them on, if all your stuff is adjustable you should be able to dial it in just how you want it.
