Default Does a re-alignment need to be done when having a cv axle replaced on a Acura Legend?

Need to save money but willing to pay if really needed.

It's common practice to align the car after suspension components have been replaced or re-installed. Normally a CV axle replacement would require removal of suspension components. If it drives normal and you don't notice any uneven wear on your tires, you might just be fine without an alignment.

I would at least stop by a shop to see if they could check your alignment for you and not necessarily do the job. I know some shops will do that for free or a small charge.
