Did I screw up my suspension or just out of alignment?
I was on a road trip this week and was pulling into a foreign gas station and being unfamiliar, and certainly by mistake, ran over the curb going around 15 mph with my front right tire. Unfortunately this completely flattened my tire (stock Fortera HL) and I was forced to stop and change to my full size spare. Now upon changing, my jeep wants to drive slightly to the right. It doesn't pull hard, or really pull at all, but when the steering wheel is straight it wants to drive slightly to the right. I got home and check side to side with my front left and front right suspensions and wheel components and I don't see any obvious damage, no bent rods or anything, but I'm stressed and won't be able to get to the shop till wednesday. The vehicle still drives fine, the ride doesn't feel any different, still controls easily, it is just slightly off now. Could it be the jeep is just out of alignment, or could there be something more serious lurking waiting cost me significant cash?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
Edit: Could it also be related to currently the one spare having significantly more tread on the tire than the other tires (25000 miles on them)? I couldn't imagine it affecting this that much. I am getting a new set of tires this week as well.
