    Hard to tell what is going on here... are you saying the steering shaft may not be properly connected to the rack? Any time you replace steering components, such as the rack, tie rod ends and such, an alignment is recommended. I always carefully measure the old stuff and set the new parts as close as I can to make the car driveable.
