what cosmetic crap? it looks like alot of the front suspension is kinda wasted
Front bumper cover, rocker panel, front 1/4, rear 1/4 work, spoiler, head, fog, and tail light, rear bumper cover, fiberglass repair on the deck lid, and paint. The tow truck did more damage than the ditch.
Mechanical stuff was a tie rod, ball joints, and a new rack/ pinion assembly (rack & pinion assembly was changed 6 months after the fact after I complained of a light clunk in the steering). My insurance company also mandates the use of all new parts as well....so that didnt help with the cost.
