Get it up on jackstands with the suspension "hanging" Do a cross measurement from the rt. side lower ball joint center usually the grease fitting. Measure from there to the rear spring hanger on the lt. side. Then repeat for the other side.

If you can find a place on the frame that has a hole the same as the other side a gauge hole would be better. If both side measure the same everything is Ok from there back and not knocked over. If there is lets say a 2" difference the front end is over 1 "

If this measures out ok go from the lower ball to the outside front edge of the frame. You are just getting cross measurements. If this is off its just bent in front of the cross member. If this is ok. Look at the gap around shroud and the fan. If its close on one side and gapped open on the other most likely just the front sheet metal has moved.

I would bet this is all that happened. Edit: the front end is just pushed over.
