Align before new wheels or after?

So I had some death wobble problems in the past and I've replaced the ball joints, tie rod, and drag link with Synergy ones. I would like to mae sure the DW is completely gone before I install the new wheels (35" tires as opposed to the stock ones I have on now) but I dont want to pay to align it twice.
Is there any reason I would need it realigned with larger tires or will it not matter since Im not lifting it any yet?

Align it now, if you did not get it aligned or you just replaced the front end components it needs to be aligned. You will not need to get a alignment done when you replace the tires.

I just put new tires on in January, I had them do an alignment at the same time. I had everything done at a firestone auto center and bought lifetime alignment. Thought that was a good deal, and now I can get my jeep aligned any time for the entire time I own this JK.

Will the Firestone warranty be voided if you swap out a tie rod or ball joint or anything like that?

There is no need to realign it after a tire swap.
