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.

If both sides were replaced at the same time, and the wheel was turned during the replacement then it is possible. However, any respectable garage would notice the difference immediately and perform a front-end alignment to re-align everything. Take your vehicle back where you got the work done, and they should do an alignment at no charge. Anytime a steering component is replaced, a front-end alignment is due. Perhaps they just forgot to do it, or thought you wouldn't notice.
