As long as there isn't any play in the tierod joint (grab wheel at 3 and 6, push/pull) and it's not bent, you probably don't need new ones. If you did smack a pothole hard, it's not uncommon for the alignment to be out and also not uncommon to bend a tire rod (inner or outer). As long as there's no play and everything is straight, all you need is an alignment. Let the shop know you hit a hard pothole and they'll make sure everything is straight. A good shop will check for bent parts anyway before aligning the car.
