Track bar bolt blocked by tie rod

Hello! I got a 99 TJ and my bushing on the driver side of my track bar is bad so I went to replace it, but the bolt hits my tie rod making it unable to remove the bolt. Before I go and take my tie rod off I wanted to make sure with more experience personnel that by doing so I won't need an alignment after it's all said and done.

Did you try turning the steering wheel?

If you turn your steering wheel, it will adjust the position of the tie rod/drag link to a point where you should be able to get to the bolt. As long as you do not adjust the length of the tie rod, you will not need an alignment. Just bolt it back up.
