Default pitman arm location

ok so i replaced all front end parts on my 96 ram wheel drive and had moved the pitman arm(was still on gear box) as i did not take it off as it was already new,,,But after i installed all tie rods and ball joints the sterring wheel was off 180 degrees,So i unhooked tie rod to pitman arm and then centered the arm to look straight to me(going straight line back to truck)Then i made sure the steering wheel had same amount of turns each way,,,So i hooked it all back up and was only out about 1/2 turn on steering wheerl as far as straightness goes,So i adjust steering wheel and now pitman arm faces the drivers wheel more and isnt straight anymore,,,So i guess i am asking does anyone have pics of what a proper pitman arm straightness looks like after all parts installed and aligned???
