Steering Gear Box replacment problem Sign In

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 4.3L V-6 and I had to replace the steering gear box on it. While I was putting the new one in I went to hook up the relay rod to the steering linkage and one wheel is straight and one is slightly turned. When I took the box out they were both slightly turned to the left and equal. I had to turn them to the left to disconnect the steering intermediate shaft from the gear box. So what could be the issue?

I really don't know what you're referring to. There is only one connection to the steering box and there is nothing specific to left or right so nothing changes by swapping a steering box.
