If i were you i wouldnt drive it and try not to hit any more bumbs for the cars sake. Alrighty the first things you should check is your tie rods and your power steering.

Re: HELLLPPPPPP!!!!

did the car drive fine afterwords? like did it pull to one side? did the steering response change? was there any play in the steering wheel?

definitely check the tie rods like steve o said. make sure there is no play. they can rotate, but there should be no other movement. if the car is drivable still, take to get an alignment check.

more than likely you just need to adjust the steering wheel. quite possibly an alignment.

Re: HELLLPPPPPP!!!!

well the steering wheel slants towards the right now when the wheels are straight. And also when im driving it the steering wheel is still slanted to the right but it pulls left if i let the wheel go and let it ride

Re: HELLLPPPPPP!!!!

beaker has a great point take it to a shop and get your steering wheel adjusted and an alinement done at the same time. i would ask them to look at your tie rods while thier at it too. good luck man and tell us how it goes.

Re: HELLLPPPPPP!!!!

I think it's a suspension problem. Using page 18-19 from Helm's, check all your suspension components. Upper/lower BJs, CVs and TRs, bushings etc.

I think a bad ball joint could also cause this, or a bad CV and also tie rods and other components as others have said.
