You mean tie rods, correct? I would get the front end alignment done for gp. (general practice)

Does it pull left or right? I'd get it done but as long as you didn't get it done by some crack head you should be fine.

They can get it close to what you had before by counting threads, however that should only be used for a brief period. Get the alignment, tire wear can result of misalignment. He really is only guessing at a length.
