I just ordered a rancho 5000 steering stabalizer along with rs5000 shocks. Should i get it aligned after putting the new stabalizer on?

the stabilizer won't do anything to your alignment. you only need to get it alligned if it is already off (the allignment that is, not the stabilizer)
U may need an alignment. I just did a new stabilizer and had to remove everything from the pitman arm to the first sleeve just below the stabilizer. Reason being, that stabilizer is press fit, and it took a large sledge to bust it lose. Now my steering is off cause I didnt get the sleeve exactly aligned. Maybe if I marked it better, i dunno.
No alignment even If you take all of your steering off. (Unless you loosened the turnbuckles) I ran into the same problem with the stabilizer not wanting to press out of the taper. I took my steering off and beat the crap out of it with a 12lb sledge :bigthumb:
