If your front sproket looks bent you might want to pull the drive side crank and inspect it and the sproket itself. Sounds lke something is bent or the sproket is loose. Either way you will have to pull the drive side crank to fix it. If your bars are loose try tightening it up at the stem bolts. If this does not work you may have begun to strip the bars.
As far as your landings are you in dirt or the street? Trick is to both is to be smooth. Slamming down after a jump will wreak havoc on all your parts not just your wheels.
