That sucks but replaceable and not as expensive as body damage.

They can run just fine with a (mildly) tweaked subframe.<br>As long as he can (and he said he did) get his alignment back to spec, it's not a really big deal

glad you dodged a bullet, looks like it could have been much worse.<p>are you running a dedicated snow tire up there?<p>

yeah i wish rain was the worst of my worries, snow sucks, but when spring comes it is all so much sweeter.<p>

snow+slush+ice- snow tires + ABS = bend subframe and tie rod.<p>I keep getting flack about running 4 snows.....without them you simply cannot turn or stop, even at very low speeds. <br>VERY lucky near miss with the pole.
