think something loose under carriage

I drove over a cement curb some time back and now it sounds like something big is wrong in the chassis or something because it squeals when I get out of the dirver seat and something loose in left rear area while I am driving. I guess I need to have it looked at up on a lift now but hope a general mechanic can diagnose it OK. I don't trust our local Ford dealership since they screwed up several things on my car before it was out of warranty. And I am not sure it was not on purpose.

Hi baylady,

If you're uncomfortable going back to your original dealership, you're always welcome to try out a different Ford dealership in your area. You can locate other Ford dealerships here: http://www.ford.com/dealerships/locate/

Thanks,
Crystal
