Depends on where the point of impact was, and how fast were you going when you hit. I'm guessing, but if it was your tire, damage could be your wheel to the spindle, to the rotor inner or outer bearings (though it would make noise when driving), lower or upper tie rods. IF YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED DO-IT-YOURSELF PERSON , jack up the front end and rest the car on jack stands on both lower forks (don't let the wheels dangle down) so that you can spin the wheels in Drive. MAKE SURE THE CAR IS STABLE ON THE JACK STANDS BY PUSHING IT, THAT IT DOESN'T ROCK OR MOVE, and that the wheels turn freely without any hindrance, PARKING BRAKE ON. Before starting, grab each front tire at 3 and 9 o'clock and try to rock your tires to see if there are excessive play. If there is then note where and replace. I fit seems firm, then... I don't have to tell you the danger of doing this, so if you are not experienced, DON'T DO IT. Make sure you are STEPPING on the BRAKE when you put it into Drive no gas and slowly taking your foot off the brake, you can assess the balance, noise, or vibration and see where it is coming from. NEVER GO IN FRONT OF THE CAR WHILE DOING THIS. Junk yard is the cheapest, but bearings and CV Joint buy new online.
