I slid sideways into a curb and dented all my wheel in. . . drove round the corner and replaced it. . . i knew there wud still be damage underneaf but i dont really know wat it cud be. . . i think it cud be a bent strut and mayb the spring. . . ne one else ever done this at about 30 mph and wat damage did they do? also wat price cud ne body estimate this at? i am dreading the bill as i am only a first year apprentice mechanic . . . oh and if ne one says u shud know watz up wiv it coz ur an apprentice mechanic. . . well i dont know thats y i am askin. . . plus i work on trucks so dont deal wiv cars at all. . . Cheers for your help in advance. . .

Fucking hell - a new leg, fore-arm and a hip (not sure about the shock)! theres some good prosthetic limbs about but i thought you only needed a mechanic not a long stay in hospital!!!

I did the same thing and all the same things as yours broke on mine (except I bent my back beam too).

The dearest bit was the new bilstein strut which was about 100, all the other bits were scrap yard items which I fitted myself.
