Here's an update..Just wanted to put this out there for any of us who might have this same problem. Today I finally got around to doing the procedure in that post link from Ramforumz. Just wanted to say it worked great.
I put my truck up on jack stands, had the wheels pointing straight out and used a silver Sharpie marker to make reference marks on the inner and outer tie rods. Then I used one wrench to hold the flat area on the outer tie rod end to hold it steady and cracked the jam nut loose with another wrench. I turned each inner tie rod about half an inch toward the back of my truck. Then I held the inner tie rod tight with my Knipex pliers and tightened the jam nut back down again. I went for a test drive on a couple of roads around here where the steering wheel used to be really off center by about 10 or 15 degrees to the left, even though the truck would be tracking in a straight line. The steering wheel was perfectly straight on my test drive today. I need to drive it for a few days or a week in different areas but I think I got it just about as close to perfect as I can. It seems like if I were to tweak the inner tie rods any further it might tilt the steering wheel too far to the right.
I just wanted to put this out there. If your alignment seems to be OK but the steering wheel is cocked to one side try the tie rod adjustment. As long as you turn both inners the same amount forward or backward it should not mess up the toe adjustments. I tried to check my toe with a couple of measurements between the inside of the front wheels with a tape measure, it was hard to do that by myself with no one to hold the end of the tape measure but it looked like they were all about the same measurement. My wheels don't look like they lean in or out and when the steering wheel is straight the front wheels point straight, so I think the toe is probably OK.
The inner tie rod adjustment trick saved me from spending $80.00 on another alignment. Maybe it can help someone else here too, sooner or later.
