Easy alignment question probably...

Hi All,

So I just replaced the ball joint at the end of the track rod but now my steering wheel is off by close to 20 degrees. What's the best way to correct this? When i installed the new joint I measured how far out the old one was but apparently I didn't get it correct.

Thanks

pull the cotter pin, remove the castle nut, loosen the clamps and pop out joint. loosen or tighten as required and reinstall. just slap the castle nut back up snug and drive back and forth in your driveway until you are satisfied with alignment. retorque to spec and install cotter.

Thanks for the input. I guess I just needed a little more trial and error. 2 more turns and I have it straightened out!
