ok being auxr8= irs :)

being irs u have no wats linkage to break but u have suspension arms instead :)

it sounds like u have knocked the front and rear alignment out, wheel is turned while driving straight.

the rear end on the AUirs is able to be adjusted, u will need a 4 wheel alignment done will cost more but will get the allignment correct front to rear.

Thanks Frank.

Been laying under it all morning and cant find anything broken or bent front or rear.

Drop her off tomorrow and hopefully all it is is a 4 wheel alignment.

Keep you's posted

Jst got a mate to drive my car and I followed behind him after I took the damaged rear bar off.

Seems the whole diff is sitting slightly to one side of the car, making it crab down the road and making the rear sit to the left. (would explain why the wheel has to be turned to make it go straight). On the road the car tracks pretty much inh a straight line.

The diff doesnt seem to be wobbling really beneath the car but it is offset to one side.

Anyone know what could be the reason and what could be the cure?

no worries

it may not be visble damage that has caused this, the floating rear sounds bad to me..

u may have slightly damaged a bushing or moved a mount enough to cause this

dirt burnout/spin led to sump failure maybe?

Then again it was a commo, so maybe it just fell out.

I dont think its possible to be more careful. It was a dirt race track thats been used for years, compacted dirt, smooth and clear. For some reason it decided to unearth itself under my car. Im not winging tho, it was my own doing after all, jst learnt my lesson. Skids on tar or no skids at all.

Thanks again guys.
