     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Driving home I hit a curb and curb rashed the hell out of my right wheel tire and rim, car pulls to the right now,nothing shaking no vibrating steering wheel or anything car just pulls a lot to the right, any ideas what could be broken other then needing alignment i have an appt tom at my indys so hopefully doesn't cost an arm and a leg to fix.

Cheers,

Drew

You might just have knocked it out of alignment or you might have bent/damaged a suspension component. Just take it to an indy you won't really be able to get a perfect answer here.

Turns out nothing is broken or bent, you're right though the alignment was off.

Glad to hear everything is alright! It usually takes a pretty nasty hit to break a suspension component, but its pretty easy to throw off the alignment.

Yeah, when it happened I flew like a good coupe inches in the air that right wheel of mine has taken a beating because I had no idea the shock was shot until I took into too the shop today:/ Looking into some KONI FSDs there a bit pricey though(n)

Pricey yes but a good upgrade worth spending IMHO. I'd also recommend the STR.T version as I've heard good stuff about those too.
