replaced steering rack and feels squirrely

Old stock rack started leaking fluid after 180,000 miles so I thought to replace it. 550$ to get done at castles garage, 179$ to get done at mine. Its in, and all the lines are tight and all the air is out, but when I drive now I catch my self having to tilt the wheel to continue going straight. I have control over the truck, but seems like I have to spin the wheel more to turn etc. So what's the deal here? Any tips? Any experiences? Could this just be a matter of alignment, I counted tie rod threads so I got it close but not perfect.
