2007 wrangler steering issue - not death wobble.

This has now happened on 2 separate occasions in the past 2 weeks and I have dealership scratching their butts. After hitting a pot hole vehicle begins jerking to the left violently. The 1st time had it flat bedded to dealership and problem was gone(I am assuming from front end being "un-weighted". 2nd time, I noticed the that with the jeep logo oriented anywhere from the proper horizontal to approx. 70 degrees counter clockwise the vehicle would drive straight with a little difficulty and any further turning of steering wheel to left would result in sudden left turn with no transition. turning right was no dream either. After stopping and popping the hood, I checked for loose fittings. Everything appeared normal, but I was able to turn the intermediate shaft back and forth approx. 45 degrees at least 8 times before it tightened up. steering went back to normal. Vehicle has sat at dealership for a week and they don't have a clue (Not even sure if they have really looked at it) Anyone here of this problem before?

Something is loose or bent up front. Drag link/drag link turnbuckle. Because of the DW, i would not be surprised if some other things are going on.
