Offset steering wheel

My steering wheel points off to the right when I'm going straight, it's been like this since I bought it and its really not a big deal. Is because of bad installation when they put in the steering stabilizer? How do I fix this?

Put it up on jackstands (front only) make sure tires are pointing sraight. Loosin the 2 screws on the steering just below the pitman arm. Once they are u can rotate ur steering wheel back to center. Tightin them up a little bit check to make sure if it is centered. If u like it tighten it down and ur done.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

No need at all to put it up on jackstands for this adjustment, it is just as easily done with the front tires on the ground.
