The issue is when the suspension has been reassembled given that spring replacement requires the removal/reinstall of dampers, all the settings (toe, camber, less so caster) could be out of spec.
Driving with the suspension out of spec will not only lead to premature and unpredictable tire wear, it can also make the behaviour of the car unpredictable if you put some stress on the suspension during some spirited driving.
So, getting the alignment ASAP is a good idea; you can always go back and check it in 500 miles.
