injured wrx

Well....being stupid me and not paying attention while answering the stupid phone I struck a crub pretty good last night. Back tire blew up (all passenger side), bent front rim and the front tire seems to be pushed in. I have no idea the exact damage, but I'm sure at the least I bent a control arm and prob more. I dont like my baby being hurt !Cry!

I've been there, recently bent my strut and Volk wheel from hitting a curb. The strut was easy to replace the wheels is not, 550.00 and it takes 90 to a 100 days to get a new one !Cry! I think my knucle might be bent too because I can't get my alignment where I want it

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

Yeah, I've bent my front one. Too bad you didn't bend those. I'd be an excuse to get STi aluminum control arms If I remember correctly, to replace my front control arm it's about 350-400 w/ labor not including the replacement rim (control arm is probably only thing damaged). If the rims are stockers, go to ebay and just get a new set for cheap.

Idealy, go to a junk yard or something and get a used control arm. I can't see those being in high demand

suspension compoents are EASY to intall, its just nuts and bolts.

and if its bent, youl need a hammer

if you cant drive your car at least attempt the install yourself


and dont forget to get an alignment when your done.
