Will a strut tower bar throw off alignement?

Will a strut tower bar throw off alignment. I just finished my TRD springs and struts install this weekend, (pics will soon be available)and i'm probably gonna need to get an alignment in a few weeks i expect as the springs settle. We'll i think in the future i might put a strut tower bar on for support. Would this throw off alignment? Does the car need to be lifted to install? Another question, i'd like to reduce the body roll just a little more, i'm thinking sway bars but the front sway bar looks like a pain to install. So would a rear sway bar and a strut tower bar do the trick?

No...you will not need an alignement after you install a strut bar. But I believe you need one after you let your springs settle thumbsup

A strut tower bar doesn't require an alignment. Also needed for coilovers or upgrades as spring and strut IMO. The first thing people should add to their cars interested in suspension is anti-roll bars. You can't expect your car to handle corners that aggressively with a lowered car. Sure the lower center of gravity helps, and the springs and damping rate so you don't bounce like a pogo stick over bumps or soak it up like a luxury car, but that's what the anti-roll bars are for. There's a science to it, just an example >>>> anti roll bar
