SOURCE: Bent right rear RH axle 2001 prerunner 2wd.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let me assist you as follows:
Removing the rear axle shaft is realy quite easy.
Her is what you need to do:

Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the rear brake drum.
Remove the brake line to the rear wheel cylinder and plug the line.
Remove the park brake cable.
Remove the entire rear backing plate assembly; no need to remove the rear shoes.
When the backing plate is off, the axle shaft slides out of the axle housing; there are no "C" clips to remove, like on a Chevrolet. The axle is not held at the differential in any fashion.
Note that if you replace the axle shaft, you will need a machine shop to press the wheel bearings & seals onto the new shaft.

If you have any further questions; please feel free to respond.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance; the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my instructions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: what could be the problem if rear driver wheel is

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.

SOURCE: I hv a '01 Aurora w/ 105000miles. On choppy

This is related to the "link assy" parts on the rear end. They are about 30" long. One end bolts near the center of the car. The other ends have a tie-rod type end and mount to the rear wheel assembly.
The knocking noises are because the link assy are bad. About $70.00 each for these. I would also check the upper shock mounts on the rear. These go bad and will cause noise as well. About $15.00/ea. Easy to replace.
The skip sideways is because the link assy or rear alignment is off. This is easily fixed and should be done as soon as the parts are replaced.

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.

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.

UPDATE---I keep having to replace the REAR wheels on my car.... the wheels are wearing unevenly i took it to a guy and he says the that there is a bar under there that keeps the wheels strait up and that...


Do NOT try and bend them back. There are a few differant "arms" under there. I'm gonna guess and say you have bent the tracking arms while hitting a curb. (thats the most common thing) Good luck and don't forget to get a 4 wheel alighnment after it's all fixed up!

SLID INTO CURB SIDEWAYS -- DAMAGE?


Front:
  1. May have bent upper/lower a-arm: used parts & Labor $250
  2. May have damaged splines on 1/2 shaft: new prts & Labor $400 (should be replaced in pairs)
  3. May have bent rim/hub : Used Parts & labor $200
  4. May have bent Strut Tower: New Parts & Labor $100 (should be replaced in pairs)
  5. May have bent sway or stabilizer Bar: Parts&Labor $200
Rear:
  1. Not too much involved in rear for these cars: New rim/tire Used for $75
  2. Bent upper/lower A Arm: $250
Civics are popular vehicles, and many new and used parts can be had on eBay or your local Salvage. Unless you specify, and they are willing, most repair shops will only replace with new parts, because they will not warranty the used ones.
Your bill could easily reach the point of totalling the vehicle. It may be cheaper for you to purchase another vehicle. Get a free estimate at a mechanic and weigh your options.
