When front wheel bearings are replaced isn't an alignment needed when finished also?

I haven't looked closely on the V, but when I changed mine on my SSEI, i just had to remove the hub nut and 3 wheel bearing bolts securing it to the strut and the tie rod is connected to the lower strut assembly, so its untouched. I would say it would be a similar configuration so no. If you removed/changed a strut your answer would be yes.

Was required on my control arm, but my wheel bearing was in the rear. As far as being required maybe ewill will chime in and tell us if it is or is not.

In theory if it was aligned before the bearing wore out then it should be okay, however it all depends.
I wouldn't say it was required as much as I would say it is recommended.
