Heavy- Hard Steering I need help

I was driving my 2009 sport teryx in the desert and went to apply the brakes and NO BRAKES! The pin that holds the rod that pushes into the master cylinder fell off the brake pedal. Hit two rocks so hard that it deflated the two front tires and broke the right front wheel. It also pushed into the frame just a little bit the right front lower rear of the A arm. My Pit Bull tires did not get hurt except for the air going out. My dealer wanted $ 263.00 for a stock wheel but instead I bought four ITP wheels for $250.00 same offset. I alligned the front end for toe in and out. My problem is that the steering is very hard or heavy. I have another 09 teryx with the same Pit Bull tires and it drives like it has power steering compaired to the one that had the accident. Could I have damaged something in the steering rack? Your ideas would be greatly appreciated.
