slid into a curb, steering wheel now 90 degrees off center

i was driving in the rain the other night, and the truck slid into a curb. everything looks ok, but the steering wheel now 90 degrees off center. the truck tracks fine, and will go in a straight line when you let go of the wheel.

i tried adjusting the drag link, but to get the wheel centered, the pitman is off center now. i checked the toe, and it looks fine.

what could have happened?

I did that doing donuts in a parking lot last winter in my dodge. the wheel had hit just right that it shoved the threadded portion of the drag link about an inch into the adjusting collar..... an alignment later i was back on the road....

i went rounds with my stock draglink... till i got the highsteer knuckle and draglink.

i always just adjusted my stock draglink till i got tired of adjusting it all the time. but then again trying to crawl stumps with 38x14.50 tires will do that.
