Well, that definitely doesn't look like a speed bump damage and even less at 15 mph. I have beaten my car very badly and never had such damage. As far as repairs... well I don't know.[werd]

so....you hit a speedbump and the wheel went FORWARDS? or that happened AFTER you nailed a speedbump and kept driving around? you seem like you could care less.

Car Abuse........poor thing....[:(]
umm no. i hit a road hump, the wheel went right into my front bumper and i skidded to a stop pretty much. i wouldnt try to drive it.


And the tow truck driver ripped my axle out this morning [headbang]

Something similar happened to my Mom's Honda Accord when I was a teen. Except we were just going around a corner and it just collapsed. It ended up being pretty cheap/easy to fix.

We dont have upper ball joints....


To me, it looks like you will need:

lower control arm/balljoint assembly
inner tie rod
possibly steering rack
strut
possibly spring
possibly need to reshape your strut tower or your suspension geometry will be wrong
might possibly need a new knuckle if it is cracked

probly a few things i missed.
