Do I need an alignment after net end-links?

So I am new to suspension work(have done nearly every other repair on the car). I just ordered new motor mounts with new bushings, and I figured while I am ordering from ES, might as well order some end links and sway bar bushings to help tighten up my front end. If I replace the end links and bushings, will I need an alignment after? I ask, because I also want to put on new shocks, and if I need to get an alignment after each thing, might as well do them all at once, and get one alignment as opposed to multiple ones. Will this be necessary? Or do endlinks not affect the alignment?

Agreed with above.

But if you WERE to replace separate components like struts and TIERODS on separate occasions, u could simply buy a 2/3yr or LIFETIME alignment, for not too much more $$$ than a one-time alignment.

Just a suggestion.
