Steering lock would lock at different angle for different vehicles depending on the position it was installed.
While driving, note the steering wheel position in straight ahead and park vehicle, allowing the steering wheel to rest where it is while driving in a straight ahead position.
Remove the steering wheel. While removing the centrla nut, the steering wheel might be turned. Return it to the initial resting position before removing.
Remove the steering wheel and reinstall it in the centralised position.
Before reinstalling the steering wheel, turn the clock spring in the same direction the steering wheel is going to be turned. You would note a TOP or arrow mark indicating that position should be at top.
Reinstall steering wheel and retest.
