Motor mount alignment after accident

Had a minor fender bender and had to replace.front bumper which was a pain.

After reading I learned the transmission mount needs to be loosened off and the transmission shifted manually back onto place. This stopped the rough idle that was a noticeable shake.

Today in the snow I had it in 4hi and for the first time as I powered to go right from a still start in packed snow it felt like the right side over torqued or something and like the engine was pulling extra hard to the right. Is my warranty intact. Lmaooooo prolly not.

After running in 4hi in the packed snow and sleet, I did a u turn and notice my front end seems unstable at hard turn, I have a 2.5inch teraflex lift and just put a smitybilt stinger bumper with a winch and 1 inch spacers in the front. I noticed the drag link has some play when parked is that normal? It almost feels like a steering issue? Any ideas at all?

Possibly this new weight in the front end is making me feel the front axle bouncing around more while spinning trying to get traction. I guess I'll go over everything and maybe add a new stabilizer. Still have stock one

Guess it was just driveline bind. I thought my tire was on the packed snow but I guess not.
