You need a 4-wheel alignment - it sounds like the rear wheels are off. Take it to a reputable alignment shop.

Do you have the offset bolts for the rear struts?? They may be needed to get enough adjustment.

You want the bolts from www.NAPAonline.com - PN NCP2643609

www.rockauto.com has the equivalent Spicer unit PN 6161014

To answer your question -
The rack input shaft has a depression for the crimp bolt in the steering shaft joint - it should be on top when the wheel is centered. If your steering wheel is centered and the crimp bolt is not on top, or your front wheels are not straight ahead, you may need to adjust the rod ends.
