fixing crooked steering wheel
my steering wheel looks like this \ instead of looking like this --
its been like that since i did the k-member and lower a-arms
the thing is when i did that stuff i didnt disconnect anything that had to do with the steering! i just propped up the rack with some wire to hold it out of the way and then bolted it back up to the k-member. i didnt adjust the tierods or anything!

yesterday i unbolted the steering shaft from the rack and tried to straighten out the wheel but there doesnt seem to be any adjustment that way.....

any ideas for me?

Your front end alignment is off. If you are good with geometry you can always do a front end alignment yourself, I've done a few, they have all come out perfect.

Or take it to an alignment shop and have them adjust tie rod ends to bring the steering wheel into line.

If it was just tie rods I would leave the nessecary geometry here but I am willing to bet the caster and camber are queered also

Typically, an alignment shop will "true" the steering wheel by adjusting on the tie rod ends; when that is done, then they align the toe settings. Of course, that would all havew to be done after doing caster and camber. If caster and camber are OK, leave them alone.
