You have probably bent the axle or knocked the rear alignment out. ( bent control arms). If independent suspension have the control arms checked and replaced then have a rear wheel alignment done.

Screeching sound when tires are turning


you most likely bent something in the front end suspension. the tires are out of camber. more than likely it will be the lower control arm, stabilizer, or outer tie rod ends

Slid on ice and hit a curb..now my front driver side wheel is rubbing the back of the tire well.what is most likely wrong.


You bent part of the suspension. Most likely the lower control arm and will need to get it replaced and aligned. Have the mechanic check the ball joints for good measure when replacing the items.

I hit a curb and the front driver side wheel is pushed back, what could be bent / wrong


Could be your lower/upper control arms or the torsion bar on your car that's bent, allowing the wheel to move back as you described.

The back wheel on my subaru impeza is bent


My best advice is to take the car to the dealership Mechanics. They will have a better handle on things than most other shops. My Opinion is that the real lower control arm is bent.

Hydro planed and rear wheel hit curb, bent in 45 degrees


on rear wheel drive the hub and bearing assembly is connected to an axle.the axle will have to be replaced more than likely.in a front wheel drive with independent rear suspension,an upper and or lower control arm and hub.either way is expensive and your insurance deductible will be alot cheaper than the 2500 to 3000 dollars it will take to repair it.

How to change lower ball joints


part of lower arm assembly only.

Installation
  1. Inspect lower ball joint boots and seals for damage and replace if required. Lower ball joint and seal is part of front suspension lower arm and must be replaced as an assembly.
  1. NOTE: Do not tighten the front suspension lower arm bolts and nuts to the specified torque until the end of assembly. Install nuts and tighten until snug.

    Position the front suspension lower arm in the front crossmember. Install the bolts. Install the nuts and tighten until snug.
  1. Install torsion bar. Refer to Torsion Bar in this section.
  1. Raise the front suspension lower arm to allow installation of front suspension lower arm ball joint into spindle bore.
  1. Lower front suspension lower arm with a jack while making sure lower ball joint is seated in spindle bore. Install the lower ball joint attaching nut and tighten to 113-153 Nm (82-113 lb-ft). Install a new cotter pin.
  1. Raise vehicle. Position the front shock absorber and install the nut/washer/bushing assembly. Tighten nut to 40-55 Nm (30-40 lb-ft).
  1. Install the two nuts attaching the front shock absorber to the lower control arm and tighten to 21-29 Nm (15-21 lb-ft).
  1. NOTE: Front suspension lower arms must be in the horizontal or curb position (vehicle on the ground) when tightening the front stabilizer bar link bolts. Use jackstands to raise the front suspension lower arms to the horizontal position or lower the vehicle to the ground (curb position).

    Lower the vehicle to the ground.
  1. Connect the stabilizer bar link bolt to the front suspension lower arm and tighten to 13-17 Nm (10-13 lb-ft).
  1. Tighten nuts and front suspension lower arm bolts to the No. 1 crossmember to 150-200 Nm (111-148 lb-ft).
  1. Check ride height and align as necessary. Refer to Section 04-00 .
  1. Lower the vehicle.

Son hit curb in 2001 saturn SL2.Knocked it out of alinement. toed in pretty bad on that side. took it to firestone and they say spindal lower controle arm and frame bent. I put up on a jack the day before...


I would get a second opinion but yes you can tweek a component a small amout but still take it out of adjustment range. You normally wouldn't replace a frame but would have it straightened by a professional body shop. It may be prudent to involve the insurance company
