if your steering column is messed up it will move around and its not suppose to. If your car is pulling it needs an allignment if your steering wheel is off center it needs adjusted and an honest shop can do that cheaply around 40 bucks or so.

Now I don't know the technical terms. This is a quick solution to consider and just to be on the safe side it might be a good idea to disconnect the battery to avoid airbag complications. Simply remove the bottom cover of the steering column and check to see if the two black gears connected to the tilt steering mechanism are in alignment. If either is off it's easy enough to nudge them back into place. Problem solved.

You have to adjust the tie rods ends between the steering arm and the power steering gear, just make sure your wheels are set straight ahead, and that you don't have any alignment problems. If you don't want to do this on your own take the Blazer to your nearest alignment center and have them center your steering wheel.
