To be honest I never gave it much thought but I don't think it would as you r applying pressure to the bottom of the wheel which shouldn't affect the toe at all and the camber it normally hard to knock out.

As others have posted there are other ways so "you can choose your poison".

ya that would be the polish way of doing it!
