Oops!!
was driving into work today and wasnt paying blind bit of attention to where i was going and i kinda went over a kerb going at a little bit of speed (5-10mph)

was clean over tyre so i got out and checked i hadnt took chunk out of alloys - wheels and tyres are fine

but when i turn right full lock i get loud knocking noise that sounds like its coming from engine bay

what damage can i do if i hit a kerb?? car i lowered too.

i was thinking driveshaft damage or steering arm bent but both of these seem fine, the car drives fine but just hear the knocking when turning hard to right.... thats the wheel that went over kerb too

have i fecked cv joint??? or what else??

hope i get quick reply as i got work tomorrow and ill have to fix it asap.

once again oops lol
