Rubbing when I turn

So, I messed up and hit a car with the right front of my truck. I barley put a scratch on my bumper. I was only going 25. I thought everything was ok but now when I turn to the left I hear a rubbing coming from the right wheel. At the same time it feels like the right tire is grabbing when I start the turn.
Any suggestions?

It very well could have done all kinds of damage to mulitple things, bumper, frame, bearings, balljoints, draglinks, if its lifted could have messed up the drop brackets ect. I would get the front end on an alignment rack and go from there!

Front end alignments are a cheap quick easy way to tell whats wrong and visually looking under the truck while checking all the plastic stuff will give you a good idea as well. im not talking about replacing all those parts just a quick glance at all those components will give you an idea of whats going on.
