Mitchness I don't see how you could bend a tie rod/draglink and have the wheels toe-out.

Hitting a bump/hole at speed can easily throw your alignment off. You may just need a simple alignment done. But does your steering feel screwy (i.e. steering wheel off center, pulling to one side or another, vibration, etc.)? Is there any obvious damage to the steering components or the hub/knuckle assembly? Bent wheel?

SubSnake The sun is setting where I live so I'll have to update you all tomorrow on pictures. These are the best I could get here in Alabama.

I did my best to explain through the arrows.




These are both with contrast turned way up.

Sounds like you've bent something in your steering. (Drag link, tie rod.)

SubSnake Sorry guys. I'll get some pictures up quick.

Axle Damage?

I recently hit a small ditch going about 15 while driving through tall grass. Jeep took the impact rather well, but it scared the daylights out of me.

Now whenever I park, I notice one of my wheels are slightly off-center. I thought maybe it was just me, but others have pointed it out, too.

Do you think I've damaged something like the axle? Or do I just need to get my tires re-aligned?

Sway bar was disconnected when this happened.
