    Unhappy suspension/ steering problem

    so i wont go into the whole story but i hit a median with a curb on it at 15 mph and jumped over it about 15ft and i was able to drive back home but my front wheels are bent outward and i have to turn the steering wheel to the right to make it go straight and when i turn it completely to the left it rubs, what do you think i have to do to get it fixed also my rim is bent just a little bit is it possible to get it fixed. thanks for the help

    Yeah dude, you gotta get an alignment, rebalance your wheels if not get new ones, if your rack is still alive, your fine, if not you might have murdered your inner and outter tierods and replace the rack if you hit it hard enough. Other than that at least you got it home. I had a simular incident hitting a patch of ice before i had my winter tires on. I went to merge into traffic and as i turned i accelerated a tad tooooo much and the rear end lost traction just enough to upset my baby and i did a series of evasive manuvers. I almost saved it but then went straigt into the a curb hitting both front tires REALLY hard at the same time. Needless to say i needed an alignment and a wheel balance

    Get it to a shop and have it inspected. You might just need an alignment and balance. Or a lot of repairs...
