Well my son crunched the focus into a curb - 2000 ZTS bone stock. The right front wheel hit a curb, bounced over and then brushed a small tree (negligible damage from the tree). The wheel has been pushed back as a result primarily of the lower control arm bending, and the streering tie rod (or whatever it is) bending a bit (the rod from the rack & pinion unit to the suspension). The subframe appears undamaged and there is no OBVIOUS frame damage (hood aligns, no detectable bends/crunches, etc.). I know it's impossible to tell w/o accurate measurement if the frame is okay but would it be worth while replacing the obvious bent parts and then having it checked out? I don't mind the labor, I've done lots of repairs like this.

Thanks,
Biederboat

i would just check it out. o, also, like most smaller vehicles today, the focus is a unibody and does not have a frame.
