Shock/strut assembly

I changed out all 4 shock/strut assemblies on my 2000 Intrepid. Now when I drive, especially on wet roads it feels like it slides easily side to side. Really notice it when I hit bumps. Hydroplaning seems more prevalent as well. I haven't had it aligned yet, is it as simple as that or is there something else going on?

^^^ This!

Without an alignment the front tires could be "fighting" each other leaving less available side force to resist drift.

Charts and diagrams available for $5 at....

Just align it.

Success

You guys are correct, got the alignment and rides great. Good advice for anyone that changes out their struts/shocks. Get aligned immediately.

Thanks
