Front suspension curb damage

I slid into a curb on a snowy road yesterday. The car had noticeable alignment issues and some nasty curb rash, but the most concerning issue was a significant vibration above 45mph. There was a lot of snow in the wheel, but even after I changed to a different set of (completely dry and snow-free) wheels and tires it persisted. I put the car on jackstands in my garage and ran it in gear and sure enough there was noticeable wobble on the wheel; I removed the wheel in case it was the culprit (they were cheap, used wheels and I suppose it was possible they were already bent) but the brake rotor still had a slight wobble to it. I'm not really sure where to go from here; is the most obvious next step to replace the hub/wheel bearing and see if the vibration is gone? I suspect that's where the damage is, but I'm no suspension expert.
