Steering wheel alignment

I wanted to clear up something I read on here . #1 You cannot just take the steering wheel off and align it . Here is why , There is a locking pin to put in the gearbox when doing an alignment. That locks the steering wheel in the straight position then you align the car. If you move the steering wheel to center it you will not have correct turn signal cancelation. Now if somebody did not re-install the gearbox correctly, then when you put that pin in the gearbox to lock it straight , your steering wheel will be off and you got to pull the box back out and align it correctly on the coupler. Take this advice from experience. Done alot of them. And yes the best test is to lock your steering it should be straight.
