ok my boy just wrecked his 96 200sx se-r........he ran stright into a ditch at like 50mph..... he just kinda ramped the other side and came out.....the car wasnt hurt that bad but he wants to sell it to me for $400....my question is if i buy another 200sx se or somthing for like a couple hundred could i switch all of the a arms and parts over to that one and will it be ok? the motor runs fine still but the front wheels are pushed back like 6 inches and the supports in the front are kinda smashed in....is their anything he could have messed up in the front that will keep the car from never being right again?

i'd be worried about the wheels being smashed in, i'd guess there is tranny damage.
trannys aren't THAT expensive either so......

as long as the chassis points for the CA aren't messed up there is a good chance that will work out alright.

you may have bent your subrframe though or pushed it back, youll need new controller arms also

hey Mike, I have an SE-R (96) that I'll sell the rolling chassis to you if you want. it could be rebuilt for around $1k prob. LMK, I'll get on AIM.

dude, hes selling u the freakin car for 400$!!! ****, the wheels alone are worth almost that if u decide to part it out! I had a similar accident, replaced driver side axle, driver side control arm, both struts.
