I read a thread about the springs, but it was closed. I bought mine at rock auto, put them on, broke a stud, replaced that from the old strut and then aligned it. My problem is that I think I premature aligned my car because now the steering wheel is off a little bit when I drive, not by much. The only thing I adjusted was the toe, should I have waited and is the toe whats causing the off center steering?

When I upgraded to FE5's I also slightly screwed up my alignment, so I'm not really sure your pre-alignment is the cause of it.
I'm not sure what it could be, I am trying to figure that out for myself as well.

that's not what I wanted to hear lol, but good to know that I'm not the only one. I have this odd feeling my steering wheel moved while doing it.

yeah you have to move both tie rods the same way just a little to get your steering wheel straight. You might be able to just disconnect the intermediate shaft and skip it over a spline to fix it also.
