I hit my rear wheel on my truck with a pole now looks like the wheel is crooked is that bad?

Hi Veronica. Yes - if the wheel appears crooked, it’s quite possible that a rear suspension component or a few of them have been damaged. I would strongly recommend not driving the vehicle and have a professional mechanic complete an inspection to determine what repairs need to be completed.
