RUSTED! Need some Imput..

RUSTED! Need some Imput..-truck-2.jpg

Hi there, I've never posted any pics so bare with me here.
I'm in the middle of putting in new Skyjacker springs. They are 1.5-2" longer than stock.
With the new springs I'll be putting on 32's.
My question is.. is it advised to take it to a shop and get the casters aligned? I'm not familiar with terms. Please correct me and point me to the right direction.. And is so, is the rust going to be a problem? Or is the alignment done on the tie rods?
Very confused here, bare with me:)

your alignment wont need castor or the toe (tierod). you will most likely need camber. the angle of the tires top to bottom. and yes, get a 4 wheel alignment whenever lifting.
