    Alright so here goes nothing trying to explain what's going on...

    2017 DCSB OR 4x4 with eibach stage 1 at lowest setting.

    We went out for a trash clean up event in the desert and were cleaning up along the trail. Took one hard dip on the passenger side front and didn't think anything of it. Truck was just fine along the dirt roads. Got out on the highway and my steering wheel had to be turned to the 1' o'clock position to go straight but it wasn't pulling either direction. Prior to the trail it was centered. We drove about 3 miles to the nearest gas station so I could take a look underneath and while pulling in something popped/thunked (sounded/felt like passenger side front) and it was centered again. Couldn't find anything obvious upon inspection. We started driving again and it slowly migrated back to 1 o'clock to drive straight and then pops again going back to center. In 10 miles it did this maybe 5 times. When it happens it feels like tension is releasing. Parked at a friend's house not wanting to make the 25 mile drive home where tools are if I am going to damage something more but for the life of me don't know what it could be. Any help would be appreciated!!!
