Tokoci adjustable shocks/struts

Just installed the Tokico Spec D Adjustable Shocks/Struts with MM C/C plates. Should I wait a certain amount of time before during an alignment or is that only when you install new springs that you wait?

I'd wait about one week and let things settle in that's what most do.

I can already tell you there is a noticeable difference from stock. They're set at manufacturers recommended settings for initial install and I've yet to adjust them but the ride already feels smoother. Maybe a little bouncy but I can adjust that. I put C/C plates as well because I'm sitting on Eibach springs.

Do you even need to get an alignment? I thought you only needed one if you messed with the tie rods and bump steer? However I do remember getting one also when I put on my springs and shocks, but it has been a long time.

Figure it won't hurt to do so. I got C/C plates now so hopefully it can get done right.

Are there any ways of doing an alignment by oneself or without going to a professional? The first place I went says he can't do Mustangs. My problem is I'm in Japan and wanting to drive American Muscle. Everything I do is treated as an oddity to these people.
