Replaced ball joint, now steering wheel is askew? 700 1991

Replaced a ball joint (wow! not fun! first tried a pickle fork - no; then a puller - no luck; finally a $30 ball joint separator got the job done). So made one mistake at the end - torqued the nuts while the car was still jacked up. Was afraid to back them off and re-torque on the ground - thought I might ruin the one way nuts. So I'm wondering if that is why my steering wheel is a little mis-aligned now. I knew you need to have your front end aligned after doing tie rod ends - that's pretty obvious, but I didn't think a ball joint would change my steering wheel. It doesn't pull to one side or another, it's just not straight. Any insights would be appreciated.
