steering wheel slightly jacked after OME lift

Just finished my OME 885 coils and AALs in the rear. The first test drive revealed that the steering wheel is now just a little crooked to the left. I know I need an alignment after the lift, but is this a common phenomenon? I'm confident that I assembled everything correctly.

I did not notice any change in the wheel alignment.
I am sure the shop that does the alignment will be able to adjust it.
Just wondering why it changed??

It will be fixed after the alignment. It's usually a toe issue, but any changes to your alignment can take the steering off center.

...This is why you need an alignment after lifting...your steering wheel is jacked....because the truck is out of alignment!
