My wife hit a curb very hard and the right wheel is way out of alignment. It broke the sway bar link, which I replaced. Is it possible the tie rod is bent, I looked at it and noticed a bend that seemed to go around the cv joint, so I do not know how to tell if it is damaged. Should it be straight? I do not want to buy one to find out it was not damaged. I do not have a saab shop near, so I do not know where to get it aligned. Or if it is a bent tie rod, would the hacks at goodyear or another place be able to tell?
