Question: what i need to fix my suv

my xl7 slid into my mail box pole last winter, on the rear driverside. the rear window smashed out from the force. I thought just the rim bent but when i changed the tire it drives as if the axle had shifted to the passenger side. i am currently deployed in afghanistan and would like to fix this issues as soon as i return. What d i need to fix this??
