Before you start throwing parts on it you better have it checked out, if you went and damaged the subframe the car may be a total loss, only a body shop can tell for sure.


I have boys that works in a body shop they even told me change the huh subframe

Tom Demyan

After you get the new subframe on, have the boys check out your rack and pinion and other suspension components to align the car back to spec.


Tennisshoes is right, after a hit like that the car needs to go to a proper front end shop for an evaluation. There are all kinds of things that could be bent or broken. Just replacing parts willy-nilly is potentially a waste of money, The car could easily be a write off.
