Curb jumping

So today I was run off the road by an SUV which resulted my versa jumping the curb and making a not so happy sound. Last week some black ice sent my front end into a curb as well. Im a bit worried that the car may have been damaged. Are my worries justified or am I overreacting? Anything I should specifically check?

I don't think so. I thought I heard a odd squeak going over a speed bump but didn hear anything after that. I doubt anything serious happened. Just worried maybe something cracked and latter down the road I get screwed over.

Alignment is most likely shot. You are now probably chewing thru front tires.

Give a man fire, he'll be warm for a night. Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

An apple a day, thrown hard enough, will keep anyone away.

Did you do a perform a front end check ? check your control arms, steering knuckle , axle , strut assembly , rim . those are most likely the parts that would of took the impact of the curb.

I did not. Wouldn't of even known what to look for. I'll do a bit of research and look at those parts after work. Saw a rim was a little messed up but mainly cosmetic. Getting it looked at with the tires.

@mogh thank god I rotated my tires the day before

definitely check this stuff out...get under there and wiggle stuff around. also try driving down the street with your wheel straight to check your alignment.

i slid into a curb once in my ranger and totally bent my rim and messed up some suspension parts

I know...I'm saying I didn't hit super hard but I still messed up some stuff pretty badly so it's possible you knocked stuff loose
