I suspect it's part of the sign on whatever he hit.

No..

Here is what happened:

Ice down hill. Couldn't stop. Hit a car. Cop was next to me. Did all I could to avoid hitting cop. Almost avoided the SUV too. Flashed my lights at them to move from like 200-300 ft away. Cop said he was looking at me in the mirror and could see me not be able to stop from atop the hill.

The high voltage sign I used to make a block plate for the intake for water. That is all.

Hence the smiley type thing and exclamation points..lol cant tell if you thought i was serious or not?.

I did assume it was a sign , just was imagining what someone would have to hit to get a sign like that stuck lol. At least you didnt get hurt man , and is that projector working ??

coilovers are not your solution. whatever is causing that will still be there with coilovers. if you can only go 35 and not keep it straight, something is SERIOUSLY bent.

you should know that Scott, come on now. shocks and struts are not gonna make the car drive all over the place. If the car is that far out of alignment then you need to look into whats bent/broke/ or even missing.

you even told me you cant go at faster speeds without the car's rear end coming loose.

coilovers/arms/plates will not fix that. fixing whats broke will

qft, it could be part of the issue but seriously, its bigger than that
