suspension help

ok...after alighning the car to spec everything good...new bushings and such for the control arm and such...the car still pulls....its nothing sever at all but it definitly isnt right...at 80mph + the car doesnt seem to pull as much anymore...i looked at the k member before i replace my control arm....could i have a bad rack cuasing this pull...im going to check my power steering fluid today and shes going on a lift and such so ima give her the run down after i check my 02's and such...my question is should i be thinkin my frames bent or that something else is broken...b/c i only hit the curb at 5mph...and ive heard worse causing less damage...but i think i damaged my rack...but i also get her on the alighnment machine to check my specs again...i need some ideas....frame?....rack?...strut?...what could be off?

Bent tie rods? Bent spindle? Bent control arm?

Did the rear wheel hit the curb too? That might cause problems too.
