well i hit a curb at taco Bell and soon as i left the bell the RC wanted to go hard right towards the ditch not funny when u got a soda in ur hand  :eek: ...i did just have a steering stabilizer put on last week i am curios if the hit knocked the stabilizer loose ?  hmm ...nothing else looks out of sorts ...i stopped and checked it out but didnt notice much ...did just have new shoes put on it today and drove great for 20 miles home ...kind of annoys me alot ....anybody got any ideas ?  will check the stabilizer out ...thought it pretty weird it would steer hard right from a slight rub on a curb didnt make much sense ...

i didnt really hit it just rubbed it a little ..might be a joint ..god i hope not ...not sure yet ...strange it might be the joint on the driver side going bad but would that make it pull that hard to the right though ?

I had the same thing happen on an old cj7 i had. I was passenger side though. Going down the road about 30mph and all of a sudden !!!!!!!Headed for the curb!!!!!!! My father pulled it apart and had me up and running in two hours. The only reason it took so long is I had to take and have a friend torch out the old ujoint.

Does your '82 RC have manual locking hubs or automatic hubs? Hitting the curb can piss off a auto hub and cause it to try to lock in. I would jack the front up and see if the tire is hard to turn, could be the brakes, wheel bearings, hub or a bent tie rod.
