Hopefully i can help..
Usually the most common fault you generally see if someone has hit a speed bump at speed is the spring itself fracturing or snaps - this have to be checked in particular around the bottom spring seat on the shock too aswell as chick up in that top suspension turret see if that whats happened - aswell as check the bottom end of the broken spring isnt sitting beyond the lower spring seat and potentailly come into contact with the tyre itself,something you certainly need to check out - if the cars sitting lower at one side the side you hit then its possible thats maybe whats happened..its certainly something to check on anyway. ..maybe your breakdown cover can come out and check that for you too see if its safe to drive that distance back to your garage or not.Its pretty hard to say wither its safe to drive or not as we can't see the car.you will only know that once all items on that side have been inspected - ie:- the spring itself - the lower control arm/balljoint is still intact and hasnt suffered damage as such..it would be the safest thing to do,or best advice - is get somebody out to inspect that side first and see whats found..I do hope this helps
Hi..Apoligies for the delay..
As previously mentioned in my last post - you should have this checked out before you use the vehicle any further...To see what extent of damage has occurred - you will only know this once it been accessed....The likely hood will be to have the vehicle lifted and recovered to your home or garage.unless you know of a good/reputable mobile mechanic locally in the area your in - can fix the vehicle onsite... I do hope this helps and sorry for the delay..Please dont forget to rate "my answer"..If you need to ask anything else then just ask for me.and i'll get back to you as soon as possible..
