    This is what happens when your ball joints decide to give up. Luckily I was comming to a stop at a stop sign and didn't make it out into traffic and wasn't going highway speeds like I was about to.

    I replaced the lower control arms, the axles, and the half shaft that had the bracket broken. I also got a new rim off of a junk yard car that hadn't been out in the yard yet so they all match again. I still need to get an ABS sensor because I didn't realize it and it got yanked enough to make it not work. Everything else on the car looked alright and it drives fine except the sensor causes the VTM-4 system to throw an error and put the car in FWD mode instead of AWD. :(

    will prob be cheaper to find a replacement than repairing it , also it will be a pain to balance with the added material

    It's already been fixed.

    $120 for new axles
    $270 for new lower control arms
    $43 for new abs speed sensor
    $86 for junkyard rim to match
    $20 for junkyard half shaft because the engine mount bracket broke and the dealership is the only one that sells them at $341 and with a week ship time
