    You can get it with 80+ degrees, but without the snow.

    Alignment when replacing an entire strut assembly IS required, and any independent shop charges $90.

    If you say so...I don't know the Daytona set up...but it would be one of the few 80's/90's FWD McPherson strut vehicle with an adjustment to Camber...which is done with an adjustable top had on the strut.
    Most...like 99% McPherson FWD setups only allow adjustment to the toe...which as I said, is not disturbed with strut replacement.

    The K based cars had camber adjustments from the factory. However, starting with the LH cars then the Neons and others, the factory struts had no adjustment for camber. But there were “crash kits” using special bolts to give camber adjustments sold as service parts. And many aftermarket struts use a slot instead of a hole, which means camber must be set.

    The Daytonas had adjustable camber via the LOWER bolt of the strut assembly, which had an offset cam shape.

    The 90’s cars had much better tolerances, and that adjustment was no longer there, though as I mentioned above, the provision to adjust camber was still available.

    Many aftermarket struts and some factory struts have a slotted lower mount hole to adjust camber.

    Most of those aftermarket adjustment kits are for those that have lowered their vehicle which at that point you DO need to adjust the alignment. I'll take it the K cars had adjustments or a cam bolt in the lower strut mount.
    The "Journey" which was the vehicle of discussion, like all the Chrysler badged Japanese cars from the 90's are simple bolt on struts. There is no cam bolts in the lower strut mount and no adjustable mount. So nothing to mess the alignment up and thus no alignment required.
    Same with the LX cars. No cam bolts or adjustable mounts on the struts.
