While backing up tonight with the windows all fogged up, i accidently hopped onto the curb.. it was not at LOW speed.. but it was a dead on hop.. was wondering if i could check the car for immediate damage.. there were no scrapes ANYWHERE on the car.. and the wheels and tires were completely fine.

i took the car to higher speed, and it was still perfectly stable, made a few quick turns and the car was still fine.. is there anything else i can do to ensure the car's condition ?

i'm just afraid of suspension damage... plz advice

thanks

dont think you can really tell except by driving he car. if something feels different take it in. maybe needs an allighnment at most.

what i'm afraid of is bent rims, damaged tires or at worst case scenerio... damaged suspension.. any chance that it could cause it ? it was at a pretty quick speed.. not your usual parking lot speed... grrrr.. i'm an idiot..

i think you should be fine, you cant really check much without getting it up in the air, but as long as it drives ok you should be fine...

dont worry, but if you want make an appnt at the dealer and tell them you heard a noise and just wanted to make sure everything was ok and they will prob just stick it on the lift for a few min and you shouldnt get charged...

oh .. hmm.. perhaps that's what i'll do.. i think i'll go to discount tire tomorrow for them to check my rims and my tires to make sure everything is still on right..

then i'll just drive to the dealer and ask them to do a quick check for me see if that'd be good..

thanks guys.. the car is driving fine.. i'm just too paranoid.. cuz my car has ZERO swirls.. ZERO Scratches.. and this HUGE bump kinda shook me up lol
