Hah I did that once. Yeah control arm, and maybe teh strut. I got lucky, you may have bent the part of frame that connects to the control arm.

If its a front wheel, right? At 60mph and with the wheel visibly out of position, it doesn't sound good.

I'm guessing maybe axle, hub, bearings, struts, tie rods, spindle, control arm.

I know a guy that did that with a V6 Tib and it did more than just bent the control arm. Fried the rim, control arm, AND shifted the subframe. The hood, fenders and bumper didn't line up. The car was 3 weeks off the dealer's lot.

Classic case of a vehicle exceeding driver skill and intelegance.

it was in the rain iono if it was 60mph but i was goin 2 fast for the turn with my shitty tires, looks like i bent the sub frame, sway bar, lower control arm, possibly the strut not sure. Is it possible to drop the subframe without a lift?

Another time I smacked the curb with my old swift like that, real hard. I took it to a frame alignment place, $140 later after chains were hooked up to my car and pulled, the car was OK.

It may not be soo bad.

best case, 50 dollars from a junkyard for a control arm and ne w ball joint, 4 hours worth of work, not to bad...

worst, frame bent, but probably only the control arm.

Hit a curb at 45+ in the rain. All i did was fubar the lower control arm, that was $15 bucks at a junk yard. The biggest problem was breaking one of the spokes of my old wheels. $275 for a new wheel.

But you musta really hit that crap hard...
