sounds like a control arm . . . & maybe a tie rod. How fast were you going?


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

i had a similar problem but i guess in a crazier incident. I hit the wall on central expressway probably doing around 55 mph after sliding with the brakes on( i wasnt on ice, it was damp roads) anyways it totally cracked my rim with a 7 inch crack along the circumfrence. I Had a bent strut, which i think i would check first before control arm cause aparently i was told the strut would go before the Control arm.iwas it a frointal impact or more of a side impact my was mainly pressure from the side.
