It's the drag link. Just look up how to do an alignment on a jeep. It's only two bolts on the drag link. Adjust it and you'll be golden. It should only take 20 minutes or so

yes it will center your steering wheel back. Have someone in the drivers seat to let you know when your wheel is straight and keep turning the drag link until they tell you its straight!

goodluck and i hope its just the drag link. the max time should only be 20minutes.
