    Steering gone stiff when turning left after crash

    Ok. So last week I crashed the car into a curb and bent the bottom arm, drop link, snapped steering arm, bent track rod end and bent the hub. Still haven't had the tracking done and its miles out but the steering is really stiff when turning left and gotta put a lot of effort in to get full lock. Turning right is fine though. Is it possible that the steering rack is fubar?

    just read about adjusting the torque sensor on the rack, could it be possible that it needs adjusting after it took a clout?

    theres no EPS light on the dash though..?

    steering racks are common to die on a C anyway so may not do harm in replacing
