    Unhappy curb 1 : littledan 0

    well... i'm a retard. it was well above zero today here in edmonton and lots of snow melted... on my way home that melted snow had become ice... making a right hand exit i understeered, pulled the ebrake to try to save my ass, and ended up smacking my left rear wheel into the curb... something is definitely broken as i now have about 45 degrees of positve camber . fuck! also curbed my front left rim... looking forward to some bent control arms and maybe some busted springs/shocks... argh! if anybody needs me i'll be curled up in the corner crying.

    Sorry to hear man but at least you're alright. Just hope there isn't as much damage as you think there is.

    Yup, been there done that in my old Honda, cost me almost $2G's if I remember, I fucked up my rim, busted my control arm etc. You might get off better since it was your rear wheel.

    Damn, I'm guessing you didn't drive home after that... Hope the repair bill isn't too expensive.

    sucks dude. at least it was the stock wheels! can you imagine banging up your pimp ones? Ouch! But definetely check out black gold for tie rods or whatever you need. much cheaper than dealer parts.

    "where the black top ends" i Hit a curb once when i first got my car, came around the corner too fast and hit the curb, tacoed my rim, and pushed the wheel back so it was rubbing on the wheel well, i almost took out a kindergarden fence, i didn't know what to do so I just drove home!>>!>!!lol, i bent the botom control arm and bent the another bar, cost me 20 bucks to fix it......

    hit a curb again, this time at about 40, the car is so low so the fram hit, it grapped it and pulled it back about 6 inchs, fucked up the front suspension, bent the frame, and needed numerous new parts(rad,crossmember,CA,.......600$and counting, I still need new ball joints and a alignment.....I can't do anyof that till I raise mmy car......I have 1inch of ground clearense!!! speed bumbes don't work,
