I had bent a tie rod so I bought l&w to replace oem. Now I’ve noticed it take a 40 acre field seem likes to turn to the right, I adjusted them to the original ones, steering wheel is right where it was from the beginning turns left just fine. I bought the ones with the rebuildable ends that fit the steering rack side. I never noticed this problem till I changed the the tie rods

Your rack is off center. Center the steering wheel (equal turns both directions) and adjust the tie-rods so the wheels are straight.

Ok I’ll check but like I said I really don’t know how that could’ve happened taking one off at a time and measuring the original ones but hey that’s my luck

Before you take it apart again, it's a simple test. Put your wheels straight. Then turn the wheel to lock one direction and count the turns. Then return the wheels to straight ahead. Then turn the other direction and count the turns. Are they the same? Then your rack is centered. If not, then it isn't.

As for how it could happen (shrug) that's just the way it goes. What matters is whether it's right, not whether it's the same as before.

If the steering wheel was not straight from day one then whoever assembled it and/or did the "Pre-Delivery Inspection" they love to try and charge people extra for at the dealer obviously didn't give two shits whether it was right. Anyway, good luck.
