If you planning on wheeling regularly, I suggest getting the lifetime alignment from Firestone

you just knocked something off, no biggie, as long as nothing is bent or broken, but, you may want to think about whatever you hit to do that, and maybe try to avoid doing that again

As you may have noticed, I'm from Ohio- not exactly the wheeling capitol of the good ole US of A. I have yet been able to find a shop that is willing to learn how to adjust camber with Light Racing UCA's. Well I did have a Firestone Lifetime Alignment and due in part to their stubbornness’, not willing to listen to even the techs at Specialty Products, they refunded my money and sent me on my way.

Nevertheless, I'm just interested in understanding where the change in geometry takes place when no parts are damaged.

The threaded part of the tie rod could have slipped; it is adjustable.

I had one of those "lifetime" alignments. Eventually, they will find a way to get rid of you.

Are all the alignment cams on the lower control arm mounts still in the same place?

Pretty strange then.

I hope the steering shaft didn't jump a spline tooth... When the rack is centered, is the steering wheel centered?
