When you have the front end aligned the mechanic should align the steering wheel also. This is so the steering wheel is positioned straight when you're driving straight down the road.

Wheel alignments require special equipment, but to do a rough alignment,(such as after replacing steering parts)to get you to the alignment shop, you can measure the back of the front tires at center, and the front of the front tire at center and ensure that the two measurements are the same.Then go straight to the shop. Driving with the alignment out wears tires and can result in loss of control.

Take it to a reputable mechanic for a front end alignment, that is how to properly center the steering wheel. Ps. Generally, the steering hub and shafts are splined, so they only go together one way... Good Luck
