Get a front end alignment
You didn't say if you replaced the front or rear but I would assume you meant the front. A lot of GM models have an eccentric bolt - or a bolt that has the shaft off center from the head. The head of that bolt fits into a slot on the strut that keeps the head from moving but allows the bolt to change the position of the spindle. (If you have switched the bolts the eccentric will not be limited and won't do its job.) If you loosen both nuts on the bolts you should be able to turn the offset one and change the "lean" of the wheel. This is actually called the camber angle. As Iccjester suggested - you should have the wheel alignment checked and the steering angles corrected if necessary.
