Those marks suggest to me more than the steering box may have been removed at some point. The steering box, steering shaft, and then the steering wheel must all be centered before setting the front end. That is the correct procedure for aligning the front end of the car. Not everyone does it this way including the dealers. The steering box accepts a tapered screw to center it. Verify the turn signals cancel out at exactly the same angles left and right. The steering wheel should lock in the center. If any of these things are off, your car may have issues going down the road correctly. MY car is at the dealer today for this reason. MY car was pulling left with new tires. I centered the box, reposition the steering wheel, and brought it to them with a crooked steering wheel and a copy of the shop manual. Its at the dealer right now actually. I caught their error.
