you will probably need a new one, and for sure an alignment. have someone check it out. it could me something more serious like a lower control arm, but it is most likely a tie rod, from what you described

Same thing happened to me a month a half ago. Had to turn the wheel 20 or more degrees to go strait. Ended up being I had bent the spindle and busted a lower ball joint. Have it checked out and get a alignment.

If you hit a curb (median) with the left wheel, is it possible for the affected part to make the car pull to the right when braking?

For the spindle any 93+ MN12/Mark VIII will work. If you have ABS make sure you get one from an ABS car. If you don't have ABS, any will work.
