My front wheels are suddenly out of alignment. I have no idea why, I am not aware of any collisions, I do not see any bent or damaged parts, frame or linkage. Is there any way to adjust back into alignment?

if the shaking starts at around 30 mph have a wheel alignment done as it indicates a castor wobble problem
have the front end and suspension checked for worn steering joints , ball joints and wheel bearings
There are numerous things that may cause this issue. Start with tire pressure at proper amount on all wheels. Next, have the front end steering/suspension checked for loose/worn parts. An alignment may be needed as well.
have the front suspension and steering inspected by an accredited suspension shop to get some idea of what is needed
normally it is upper and lower ball joints or lower ball joints and struts and steering rod ball joints
they can also do a wheel alignment and if you haggle with them they may do the alignment for free if they get to replace the worn parts
don't forget that a proper wheel alignment means that the rear wheels are properly aligned to the chassis first before the front wheels are done
Get the four wheel alignment if you heave never had it done. Be aware that on the rear the adjuster bolts may jammed with rust. On the front, the ball joints, rod ends and strut bolts need to be on good condition.
This is a common problem. The last time the aligned it the may have bumped the steering wheel and when they aligned it and tightened everything back up it was off center. The next time you get it aligned make them aware and they'll straighten it up for ya.
while the wheel bearings still feel tight they are the cause of your problem, after a collision most cars suffer from this problem depending on the speed of the accident the forces encountered during a sudden stop causes intense stress and fatigue on the bearings

Front end need to be checked. checked shocks and stabilizer links. check damper shock.Check the tie rods. They had come loose, causing the wheels have excessive play and vibrate. Be aware that they will not balance tires or give a front end alignment if the tie rods are the culprit. They must be replaced first, otherwise the alignment will only hold until the first time you turn the wheel...which could be 5 seconds after you get in the car. Good luck.
