Ice + Speed = A bad day...

so the other day I took a turn and hit some ice and slammed into a curb lat at night. Now my wheel is acting kinda funny and the lude pulls to the left, so im wondering if there may be some serious damage. A friend told me my LCA may be bent but im not sure, im not too mechanically inclined can anyone shed some light please! i need to fix my baby ASAP

May be the tie rod end as well. The wheel is probably bent.

could be either LCA, UCA, tie rods, steering rack, subframe, or any combination of them.

could be a number of things. Take your car in to get aligned and they can probably tell you

Re: Ice + Speed = A bad day...

Same thing happened to me. The bolt holding the sway bar onto the rest of my car was bent, and it was pushing the knuckle inside. My knuckle was also bent outward, making my wheel tilt top out. I can run kinda ok, but my tires may give, and steering is a pain.

Re: Ice + Speed = A bad day...

lol same thing happened to me while I was having fun in he snow pulling the E-brake with my winter beater a week ago, I lost the car and hit a curb, when I was about to drive back, my car pulled wayyy to the right, I blew up a brand new Nokian AK-5 lol

teached my a lesson !

but I'm pretty sure, if your tire has the right PSI, that your problem is a bent disc, or wheel.
