Ok so I just pretty much have to make sure I don't disturb the tie-rod and I should be good?

What about bad ball joints? I had bad ball joints, then i changed the whole control arm on both sides and now when i get on it, i get bad torque steer but always to the right, it feels as though it's sliding.

I'm wondering if when i changed out the whole control arm, i now get super stiff steering response, because i don't remember my front end sliding from before i replaced the control arms.

Unless the caster is out now, but our cars don't have adjustable caster?
I don't want to do an alignment yet, because i have to change out my outer tie rods, the boots are cracking.

exactly what i was thinking.... i understand that if you were to unbolt the top of the shock, that may throw off the alignment especially those with camber plates. however, you dont need to drop the strut out to change the wheel bearing as stated above. thank you for all ten comfirmations though
