Drive front tire wobble

I was driver through a mt pass on Saturday and hit an path of ice and slammed into a snowbank on the driver side and now only in 4hi when I turn sharply to the left the driver front wobbles like it would if you had a flat any ideas I looked and didn't see any leaks or anything majorly bent outta shape so I'm thinking that maybe I bent an axle

I would look at the u joint and the hub before assuming a bent axle.

Jack the side up, place a jackstand under the axle and remove the tire. Spin the rotor. If the axle is bent you will see the axle joint swivel to compensate. YOu can check other things as well.

Here's what I would do if I was you. Take Jeep down to Les Shawbs and ask for a front end shake down. They don't charge they will tell you what's wrong.
