Default One wheel went slightly up a curb - checking alignment myself?

Hey all, I was going up a driveway for a gas station at an angle, and the back right tire kind of went up the curb (edge of the driveway). I was going a little fast (maybe 15-20 mph?) so it was a somewhat hard bump. The car feels fine, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can check myself to make sure the alignment is still good. Any certain things I can measure to compare the left and right rears? Thanks.

i've done that on my other cars before never the suby...

but usually when you're driving on a flat surface and let go of the wheel... and the wheels is not tugging either way... i'm pretty sure you are fine...

usually when you hit a bump hard enough to throw your camber or toe off one side the car will tug to one side or the other.

they do have those level tools that stick on the wheel hub that allows you to meaure camber...

good luck... if you're still paranoid about it... just bring it in for peace of mind. atleast if something actually does go wrong with it... you can have someone else to blame
