Finished tearing the car down tonight. To my surprise I have only found a few small things other than the wheels that are messed up such as bearings and races. There's also a couple of nuts and bolts that are in need of replacing. Other than that reweld a few spots and reassemble.

Glad to hear it. Better than finding a tweaked chassis.
