I accidently ran over the curb with my passenger front wheel at approx 20 mph. Now my steeringwheel is at 2&8 oclock position. Everytime i reverse out of my driveway, it make a clunk noise, when i put it in drive and the car start moving, it makes another clunk noise.

Is it just alignment, something came loose and couldbe tighten or did i break something?
I crawed under and visually inspected, there was no loose parts. What do i have to look for?

I would not continue to drive the car daily if your steering wheel is now 2 & 8 !

If your steering wheel is in that position now, pretty sure that your tierod(inner/outer) will most likely be bent. Hopefully you did not do any damage to the upper or lower control arms. If it's just the tierod then it shouldn't hurt the pocket too much.

you wrecked your control arms and i'm sure your tie rods are beat.

i just did someone's passenger side upper, lower arms plus both tie rods when he kissed a curb.

i would stop driving it asap and get it fixed... asap.
