Be Careful With Curbs

A pretty new Accord came into the shop, owner said they hit a curb.

The right rear wheel was pointing obviously in not quite the right direction. It shouldn’t be quite at the angles you can see here.

This is a view of the left rear suspension, which was fine. You can see that all the arms are straight.

And this is how the right rear looked. One arm got bent pretty badly. The wheel was also bend a bit, and chances are the bearing and knuckle are messed up as well. It must’ve been a pretty hard hit.
