No, he hopped away. Hopefully someone can give me the answer to my problems though.

Your repair shop didn't do such a fine job, eh? From your description, I'd say the groaning sound was a wheel bearing or one of your accessories driven off your serpentine belt, like the power steering pump is failing. The drop in height can be a suspension part that was bent and not replaced. Was this an insurance job? If you can take it back to the repair shop to get it corrected.

Thanks for that. Yes, it was an insurance job. Before I take it back to the smash repairer I have to work out if it is his fault or not.
