    Searching around, it appears the people with this problem seem to have misaligned the input shaft upon reinstallation. Is your steering wheel off at all when driving straight?

    No, its straight as far as I can tell. I mis-marked it, so I kinda had to eyeball it, bit the few miles of driving I did were straight.

    Gotcha, it seems that even being off by a small amount can cause issues though. Others have reported needing to change otu the clock spring assembly in their steering columns due to a ribbon in there having been torn because of a misalignment. Hopefully your issue is not as bad as that, but you may want to get it professionally aligned.

    You might have a steering angle sensor code in there, as mentioned even a slight misalignment can throw a code, I have seen it many times...
