slammed into a curb



First of TC isn't as good as I thought it was. So anywhoo, anyone think this is a bad hit. I cracked my rim and rotor; and snapped my wishbone. Other than that anyone think of any other damage? Oh and my front bumper is misaligned with my headlight, suprisingly the radiator is fine.

Any hit that hard can telegraph damage deep into the structure. Have hood or door gaps changed any? Look for wrinkles in the trunk floor near the suspension mounting points.

The entire fron end is mounted to a large H shaped aluminum forging. Have that inspected carefully.

That was a really bad hit to damage a rotor and jack your alignment. I just did my front end and was surprised to find that the tie rods are the only adjustment in front

What he said.

BTW, on the front you can adjust camber and caster, as well as toe.

No caster adjustment with stock component
There is a special stock lower control arm that does allow caster adjustment, but it is a special part and around $500

Of course with 3rd party parts, there nay be a caster adjustment
