Technically after you do any wheel/steering/subframe work you "should" get an alignment. However it'* pretty commonly accepted that swapping fixed items like bearings are close enough that the change in alignment will be little to nothing and the money is better spent in other places.

I changed a strut mount and there was no change. Thanks free 6 month alignment.

National bearings made in Korea are good haven't had many problems with those just stay away from the china ones they are terrible or Timkin'* are good to i think those are made in the US but not positive, of course the best would be the the gm ones but those are very pricey.

Good point. The National bearings are a bit pricey, but they are well worth it. If you buy a cheap hub from China, be prepared to buy another one in a year or two. Some of those are bad right out of the box.
