Today when i went to the bank i hit the curb while i was parking. I went up too far at around 10-20mph. I left tire marks there and power steering leaked some, but stopped soon after. Think 20mph could have messed up something down there ?
"were you trying to drive through the wall and rob the place?"
haha, howd you know?
Hey everything seems cool and stoped leaking, you think i messed it up? I driven it about 30 mins now and dont see/hear/feel anything different. Could some internal error appear suddenly? Like if it is fine today could it be a different story in the morning?
I had a bad tire/wheel incident once. I was cornering and the car popped into neutral and I didn't notice. When you're used to steering with the gas, and it's not there, the just doesn't seem to turn as well.

I park at 10-15... dad FREAKED one day when he saw me whip into a tight space, twas funny because I do it all the time perfectly, parallel to the sidwalk, and equal distance from each car besides me. I'm just really good at parking. Parallel parking, however, I get impaitent and end up far from the curb cause I'm too lazy to go back and fourth a couple times. :P
Everything seems fine. My power steering fluid was dripping a bit but it was not massive, and it stoped shortly after. The rack had a bit of oil around those black plastic things?(Somebody please tell me what they are called :P) Everything else thu was pretty much fine. I even drove around a bit and didnt' notice any big changes of the handling.
The frame? I guess it depends on luck and angle. I got T-boned in my E30 and didn't even need an alignment. No frame damage, unless you count the rocker panel. I was stopped and they were going about 20mph.
