I agree that its probably the gearbox, same thing has happened to my racecar a few times under similar circumstances. It doesn't seem to take much.

I basically hoped over a curb on the drivers side and went over two big rocks but like I said no visual damage.

I tapped into the back of an 08 sentra the other week and my steering has been off ever since..my front bumper grabbed her rear bumper and tore it clear off..barely even scratched mine but ya my steering is messed up too..I was also thinking it;s prob the steering gear box..

Try taking it to the alignment shop, you might have knocked something off regular stats.

I can tell you what it is. It is your steering stabilizer. Its bent. I did this a couple times. buy another and replace it and its all good.
