Rear Axle Alignment

How easy is it to knock the rear axle out of alignment? Cause like everyone else i sometimes turn to sharp and drive my rear axle over a curb, and yesterday i did that and i know its never good to do that but this time i seem to hit the curb hard and came off the curb hard so im worried that my rear axle has shifted or been knocked out of alignment and before i spend money on checking my alignment i just want to get some reassurance.

Your probably fine but you can check the alignment with a tape measure and a reference point like the hitch or something.

If the frame isn't bent, the leafs are attached, and the u-blots are properly torqued; it's not out of alignment. Measure from wheel to wheel with a tape measure and see what you get. It's pretty hard to knock a solid rear out of alignment.

Thanks guys for the quick replys! I know it was a hard hit, i was at a dead stop and turing right, i had to accelerate quick cause a car was coming, so i hit the gas and right rear tire just jumped the curb tossing me and friend around in the truck. my friends said its fine but i care for my truck like its my child.

So should i just measure the space between the tire and the fender?
