Question 94 Accord - Stiff steering (but not a power steering issue)

I just finished replacing the brakes and rotors on my 94 Accord Ex (two door). (If you have done the front rotors, you understand the issues I ran into trying to switch them out) I got everything put back together and have been driving with smooth braking! However, my steering is a little stiffer than before. Before I did the job, if I turned the corner I could let go of the steering wheel and the car would go straight again. Now, if I turn a corner the car only goes back to 5 degrees off of straight and it is a little stiff to get it straight. I haven't had the alignment checked, but the car isn't pulling either direction when driving or braking. I am wondering if something didn't get bolted up tight but wanted to see if anyone has any ideas what is causing the problem before I tear everything open again. There is no whining and I don't have a power steering loss, it just feels like something is rubbing in/on the steering knuckle or hub joint.

I did have to replace the lower ball joints when I did the front rotors because I destroyed the old ones trying to get them out, but I don't think this should affect that.
