steering needs resetting after wishbone fitting

prior to fitting my new wishbone the steering wheel was point dead straight, now it is off centre, leaning slightly to the left....

have i done something wrong? the steering does pull to the left a little when i let go of the wheel

because we did both wishbones and a CV boot we pretty much stripped out all the front N/S suspension and at one point it was all in pieces

any suggestions?

You need to get your tracking done. Or you have done something wrong when fitting the new parts. Or something was bent originally and the tracking was adjusted to compensate for it.

I had the same when I had my upper/lower wisbones replaced, its nothing to worry about and to be expected after all that work-like Rockhopper says, you just need the tracking adjusted
