Bwano, so i replaced my track arm on my truck yesterday and all went good. So i go to leave from the shop and my truck seems to drive a little better but my Steering wheel is now turned to the left and not centered. The truck centers itself with the steering wheel turned to the left(and i dont have to hold it left, thats where it drives striaght so to say. Just trying to figure out y a new track arm would make my steering wheel move to the left as it goes straught down the road. my dad said pop the wheel off and move turn it a knotch but dont understand y it would move my wheel. Feedback would b great because i cant figure this one out. Maybb because i changed all the steering stuff i should get it aligned again.  Thanx again Gents.

If the old track bar held the axle out of center and you had an alignment job done, then put a new track bar on that moved the axle over, it will change the linkages and cause the wheel to turn
