    While it could impact the steering wheel being level with the dash when you are going straight down the road, replacing the steering gear won't impact any other angles, so from that perspective no. But, how long has it been since the truck has been aligned, and is the steering wheel centered right now? If it isn't that is an indication that it needs done anyway.
