    Well...most obviously your going to have extreme uneven tire wear...It all really depends how far the toe is out....Pic's here would help alot....do you know exactly what you bent/ F***** up on your suspension?...If the toe is out like ALOT your prob. putting more stress on other parts of the steering/suspension system so my bet is you could have the possibility of damaging other componants....But as I said it all depends how bad you messed things up...

    Well, since there are no takers, I'll give the first prediction for free: NASIOC OT will become a haven for unsympathetic gawkers who like to laugh at people's misfortune and belittle them for their mistakes.



    OP - glad to find out you're fine and sorry about the car. I do hope you can clarify whether you got this alignment issue straightened out which would be a reasonable assumption given it has been over a year.

    the blowout isn't really the problem, it's the rolling of the car following the blow out. Hundreds of thousands of people have tire failures each year, however, 99.99% of those do not result in roll overs. Which leads me and others on OT to believe there are underlying issues that caused the roll over, not directly related to a tire blowout.

    I'm am glad the OP and his passengers were not more severely injured or killed by this accident. However, this should serve as a warning about the need to repair suspension components when damaged ASAP.
