Default Steering alignment/ Tire alignment!

I have a lifted club car and a while back I hot a palmetto root and ever since the front wheels have been out of alignment and the steering wheel is turned about 180 degrees upside down. Any ideas on how to fix this would be great! Thanks

How mechanically inclined are you? Just measure your tires, same spot on front then measure same spot on aft side of tire. U can remove steering wheel, then put on straight.

I'm pretty mechanically inclined, I've tried messing with it to get it back straight but I think what it might be is the rod coming out of the steering box is messed up. Which throws off both tires somehow.

You may have bent the steering-arm on the box,or twisted the shaft.Set both wheels straight-ahead(by eye),then look at the steering-wheel position.Now sit on the cart,turn the wheel fully in one direction,counting the turns.Now turn it fully the other direction,counting the turns.Now split the number in half,this is your true-center.Turn the steering-wheel that amount,the wheels should be straight.If so,remove the steering-wheel and recenter it,if not,readjust the tie-rods.Are the wheels both turning the same amount,when you turn?There may be a bent steering-arm on a spindle as well.Hope this helps.
