Needs someone to check for play in the items you have mentioned (though probably not the u-joints), plus the swaybar links, and shock absorbers. If you can get the vehicle jacked off the ground (with safety stands under it) you should be able to check most of these items with a suitable lever bar. Wobble the steering wheel side to side to check the tie rod ends, with the vehicle on the ground and one hand on the tie rod to feel for the clunking.

just replace the one outer tie rod if it is the only one that bent. YOu will want to go have an alignment check done when you are finished.

Best thing you can do is to jack up the front axle and put a long bar under the tire and attempt to lift it, Have someone watch the ball joints for excessive play. Then, while still lifted, have someone try to move the tire in and out by grasping it on both sides and shaking it. again watch underneath for any looseness in any suspension parts anything that has excessive play needs to be changed. Replacing ball joints is not an easy job if you have not done them before. It requires a special press. If you do decide to do this, I suggest that before you install them you put them in a freezer and work quickly when installing. They must be perfectly straight when going in or they will jam. You will also need to take great care to not damage them by bending either the top plate where the grease fitting goes or around the opening where the joint spindle exits the housing. Tie rod ends etc are simpler to install, requiring either a direct bolt in or matching measurements to retain original or close to original settings.

Seen this a few times in my shop.
Check the steering damper/stabilizer.
If the fluid has leaked out it will allow a kind of harmonic to take place and it won't stop until you slow right down.
The damper is like a shock absorber and it takes out that harmonic.
Undo one end of it and push/pull on it. if you feel any free play at all....replace it.
Get a good quality one as you know how important it is now.
This should cure your problem if all else is good.

If both the ESP [Electronic Power Steering] and Airbag lamp are on then first I would check to see if something such as an electrical connector may have gotten unhooked down by the tie rod ends. The system isn't seeing the data it should, or is seeing some data it doesn't like, and has turned on both of these warning lamps as a result. I have seen similar problems occur if the steering shaft was disconnected from the steering gear and inadvertently turned a revolution or two before being reconnected. If no wiring problems are found then the system will need to be checked/tested using a scan tool to narrow down what has happened. Hope this helps and good luck!
