Take off the wheel well liners. Frame rail could be bent, broken, or rusted pretty bad. I had a frame rail that twisted pretty good from spinning out. Mine was right where the opening for the snorkel on the driver side. Luckily, I have assorted cutters and welders, but still, if it's that. I feel bad for you.
edit- Also, could be the PO fixed or had someone fixed the flanges on the cradle where they connect to the lower control arm and they half-@$$ed it. Check the flanges to see if there is damage. Check where the cradle meets the frame in the back (take wheel well liners off for that). Basically, just take off the well well liners and look for rust or anything that look funky. Also, feel along the frame rail for chunks missing or breaking off or where it is coming off the firewall.
