Sometimes it can be hard to tell when your vehicle needs an alignment other than when there are obvious warning signs. For example, steering wheel off center when driving straight, car veering to one side, or steering wheel vibration. Some say it is necessary to get an alignment after modifying suspension components or changing wheels/tires.
What I'm looking for is an all out checklist to use as a guide of when to get alignment, specifically after certain modifications are made. I think it will be beneficial to include when it is necessary versus when it is advisable.
**For my purpose in asking this question; I recently changed my wheels where the offset is about a 20mm difference. An alignment was done recently but before the change. I'm also looking at upgrading suspension components, such as, sway bars, end links, camber bolts.
