that really sucks man..
that exact thing happened to me, BUT the girl didn't stop, she took off.
i was able to fix it all for fairly cheap, and the car runs tip top. don't give up!

frame is bent though.. the passengers side rear tire is bent inwards, front tires just looks crooked.. we couldnt even get the hood open yesterday =/ we dont know what's that about. We're still waiting on what the insurance has to say about it. Good thing tho Zab's ok! this being his 2nd wreck and still without a scratch!

my wheel was inward as well, it was just a control arm. if the frame is bent, then that's another story. tire wear would suck..
bummer, but yes it's a good thing you weren't hurt.

If totaled, buy it back for sure. A new rear subframe should have you good to go.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. The total cost was 3000 to fix it.New quarter panel, wheel and lower trailing arm. Just an FYI the rubber material of the newer arms are softer than the older ones. I found this out this weekend replacing the bushings in arms with polyurethane. The newer one wasn't as stiff as the older one and was falling apart. Might check or just replace with polyurethane ones. Also camber is a little off on that side but nothing camber arms wont fix.

^^ that's close to the estimate the insurance adjuster came up with and it wasn't until yesterday that. The insurance gave the go ahead with the repairs, the guy at the shop will start ordering parts today and they'll start taking it apart today or monday :)

we dont know when we'll get the car back.. the guy at the shop said it could take from 7 to 10 business days.
And Yes help will be very much needed and appreciated after we get the car back and get some finances straight we'll start ordering parts for it.. hopefully we'll have some extra cash from the insurance to get things rolling a little quicker LoL
