    Missis Hit Curb!

    My missis hit a curb while driving in her fiesta.

    The car now has a violent shudder when braking, especially at higher speeds so im guessing she has either buckled the wheel or knocked out the alignment, but im not sure.

    The car doesnt pull to one side when driving or even when braking it just shudders so that probably rules of misalignment.

    Could it be possible she had warped a brake disc or caused suspension damage?

    Any ideas anyone?

    Sounds like a damaged brake disc.
    If its doing it only when braking, then new pads and disc's required.

    If it was a buckled wheel or damaged tyre you would feel it all the time! got to be a warped disc! but how she has done this by kerbing it is strange??? usually if you warp the discs you would have warped both! but this would be my first port of call....
