front end shake help?

Over the last couple days if got a bit of a front end shake. My wife put the truck in the ditch in the last snowstorm we had i have a feeling thats the cause.

Heres what i have done so far. Seems to pass the wheel bearing shake test. No play in ball joints either, they are less than a year old. Brake pads and rotors are less than 1 day old. Do you think she couldve knocked a wheel out of balance or broke a band in a tire?

Re: front end shake help?

Is there mud or something packed on the inside of the wheel? It could also be a bent wheel, too.

Re: front end shake help?

maybe it was knocked really badly out of alignment? Bent wheel is also a possibility
