I have the control arms but did not buy the moog hardware and alignment kit K80065.
A change in camber/caster alignment is not possible using the original fixed factory Ford plates in their original locations. These were selected on the assembly line from several available offsets to put the original alignment within spec.
In the field, an adjustable eccentric is installed in place of the fixed plates to correct the alignment. Kits are available from many sources including MOOG.
So, if the replacement arms with the original plates take the alignment out of spec, you'll need the kit. Unfortunately, there's no real way to know that until everything is assembled and the alignment is checked. IMO, it is smart to just put the kit in now while everything is apart. Then you're covered for any current or future alignments that the truck may need.
