    I agree with the above answer.
    You need to remember a new part is not made with precision. There is a good chance the new tie rods are a little longer or shorter. Get an alignment as soon as possible so you don't ruin your tires. If you have driven it a lot it may be in your best interest to rotate the tires also... after the alignment.
