power steering belt broken or fell off, or the pump is out of oil. The pump is down on the right hand side (passenger) between the fire wall and the engine. You should be able to see if the belt is still on. Check the resevoir for oil. It is on the same side. It's a little plastic pot with a dipstick. Let me know how you make out.

You've probably bent an axle or other part, or at a minimum knocked off a wheel balance weight. Jack up the car off the wheel that hit the curb (support at the jack point on the body, not the under the suspension), block the other wheels so the car can't move, then put the transaxle in Neutral. Turn the wheel by hand. It should turn freely with no wobble, ticking or dragging sounds. Start slow, then try to spin it as fast as you can. Next, wiggle the moving suspension parts to check for anything loose, and inspect for deformed components. Replace any bad parts you find, then take the car to an alignment shop. Ask the shop mechanic to check the wheel balance before starting work in case you have a bent rim (although you probably would have found this yourself when you had the car up on the jackstand).
