centering steering wheel

My Steering wheel is off to the right a little bit. Do I turn the Turnbuckle to the front or to the back to recenter it? I read THe link Basic Jeep Front End Alignment.
I just took off a 2" Spacer lift and put it back to stock. Im trying to get my axles recentered and my steering wheel centered.
Its getting new Rims tires and an alignment on Saturday but I figured Id give the steering wheel a shhot since it looks easy.
Thanks!

Try the front first, and if it gets worse, you went the wrong way.

Have someone sit in the driver's seat to monitor which way it going

Don't forget to have the engine running (neutral/park/brake on) so the power steering pump lets you adjust the steering wheel with "STRESS"
