Welcome to the forum

Frame could be bent/tweaked, the weight of the engine, transmission and rear axle continue forward when there is a sudden stop, i.e. front end collision, this can cause frame to shift a bit, bend

Do a 4 wheel alignment, this can usually correct a minor bend, or frame can be straightened if its too much to be corrected by just alignment
