Alignment question

Have an 08 F250 with a 6" lift and 35's. My steering was off so took it in for alignment and found I needed a new wheel hub. So got the wheel hub, alignment and rotation done. Steering wheel is still at around 11 oclock when I drive. Was hoping it would be nice and straight. Should I be taking it back for a correction or would there be something else causing the steering wheel to not be straight? Just got it done yesterday and noticed the second I left. Was looking forward to it being at a nice 12 o'clock when driving straight.

Yeah take it back. I put a leveling kit on my 6.4 this past weekend and my steering was way off and I wanted an alignment after leveling it and truck drives straight and steering wheel is perfectly center(it was almost a full 90 degrees clockwise)

Its pretty easy to correct, I am installing 7" as we speak and mine was off quite a bit. Just twist the adjuster on the drag link till it evens out. Or take it back to them since you paid them to correct it!

guess the geniuses there forgot to reset the steering wheel when they did the alignment. Pick it up later today and was told it drives straight as can be now, including the steering wheel. thats a relief. At least this vehicle is going easy so far. My last lifted tahoe had rim protecting tires that overlapped the side of the rim so they couldn't get the alignment machine on the rim to do the alignment unless I went to a specialty place that was two cities over.
