My brother had his vehicle (2003 sorento) lifted to rotate the tires when the jack failed. The collapse resulted in the drivers side front sans. Tire landing on the rotor. The alignment still feels true, however, there is a pulse when the brakes are applied and while driving on freeway there is a definite front end shake not unlike an out-of-balance tire. My question(s), could this be a warped rotor caused by the impact to the ground, bent lug bolts, an unbalanced tire?

Problem should be with the rotor.

Check the edges of the rotor for dents. The impact could have dented the edges causing the vibration.
