Ok, so I was driving and went over a bump (not a big one mind you) and I heard a pop. I thought I got a flat tire so I pulled over. Everything looked fine so I kept driving. But then I noticed that my steering wheel was kinked by about 20 degrees but the car was still going straight. Brought it to a local mechanic to see what happened. They said that everything looked fine. They though perhaps a gear skipped on the rack and pinnion.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this.
Please help!

Alignment was knocked off when you hit the bump. If everything else is fine under the car all you need is a front wheel alignment.

Never heard of this one before. A shop would align the wheel back to normal just fine.
