stand in front of the bike, put a leg on each side of the front wheel; grip the handlebars and twist them in the direction you need.

i had the same exact problem, it can be the bearings in the wheel are messed up, but my problem was a bent fork leg...swapped them out for +1's and BAM, no more slant.
