Issue w/ Steering box/shaft/steering wheel alignment.
Last fall I replaced my steering box with a reman unit because my steering was getting pretty loose. The instructions that came with the steering box said do not adjust anything because it was adjusted at the factory. So I threw on a new pitman arm and bolted it up. The problem is, now my steering wheel is not straight and my turn signal doesnt cancel correctly, I have to do a full turn to the left then back straight to cancel it that way but only a smidge to the right and back to cancel it that way. I can adjust the tie-rod from the pitman arm to straighten it out I think but I thought I read that the pitman arm must face straight back and be centered (not turned one way or the other), so that steering stability isnt affected.
I think everything is keyed so that it can only go on one way, (pitman arm to steering box, steering shaft to steering box, and steering shaft to steering column as well as steering wheen to column)
If I turn my steering wheel so it is straight, the pitman arm is facing the rear of the jeep at the same angle as the gear box, so it is pointing to where the driver would sit. Is this right or does it technically need to face the rear center of the jeep? The alightment guys at the local shop had no idea about the turn signal cancelling incorrectly or the pitman arm being centered etc.
