    I am installing my rear 5100's today and was wondering if I needed an alignment for the rear.

    If you're just installing the 5100's in the rear, you do not need an alignment. You're not changing any of the geometry by replacing just the rear shocks.

    There is nothing to align in the rear anyway.

    Alright that's what I was thinking, thanks for the clarification.
