I remeber someone on this board said they had a bent lower control arm. I'm curious what it felt like. I am still experinceing some odd handling. It actually feels like i have a flat rear tire. I have checked the settings on my AGX's they are both set at 5. Also went i got my alignment they could get 2 degrees of camber out on my right front and i have the camber kit installed. I'd like to figure out what is causeing it ASAP b/c i'm driving to Mrytle Beach on the 29th and I'm buying rims before the 22nd. So I don't want to **** up the new tires on my 600mi quest to SC. HELP!!

one more thing the ES bushings aren't on yet b/c Courtesy STILL doesn't have them

I bent the drivers side. what did it feel like? well like I hit a curb straight on. (ending up stopping on the median for the on/off ramp). It had a bit of a drift to one direction but other than that it was fine. I didn't push the handling that hard back then tho.
Jack up the car and look it. Mine was visibly damaged when compared to the opposite control arm.

Toddles, thats pretty weird cause the same thing happened to me. Not in my current car, but in my '91 SE-R last year....I was taking a turn in the heavy rain and I hit a puddle and smacked my R/F wheel straight into a curb. Got a nasty flat, ruined the wheel and the entire wheel assembly was pushed back towards the rear of the car. It was undriveable and I had it towed.

Mine wasn't that bad. I was taking my friends home and they told me to turn off too late, so when I tried to cut it over I hit the gravel patch that everyone normally misses when they turn from the turn lane and not normal traffic. So I hurdled into the curb over it onto the turn median. A piece of the tire was missing (next the rim) but other than that the only think hurt was the control arm.
