    anytime you mess w/ suspension, whether it just be raising or lowering your coilovers you always need an alignment afterwards

    The brake system rides on the hub and does not affect suspension geometry.

    If you replace the trailing arms (what most people do) then you should definitely align the suspension. If you're just replacing the hubs, then no.

    That's what most people do- it's very easy to just swap it out.

    Ah yes, if suspension components are replaced, it stands to reason an alignment is in order.
