Front End Damage??

shalynnFebruary 1, 2007

It snowed yesterday and while I was turning left I hit a slick spot and slammed into a curb going about 25 miles...there was no damage to the body of the car that I can see...its just that now there is a constant grinding sound and in order for me to drive straight down the road my steering wheel is about 45 degrees more to the right than normal....what has happened??

Probably bent a tie rod or control arm. If you have comp/collision insurance it will be covered less your deductable. I strongly suggest you don't drive this car again till it's fixed. Have it towed. You think it was hard steering on a slick spot. You really won't like it when parts of the suspension or steering fall apart as you're tooling down the road. On coming traffic won't like it either.
