A couple months ago I bumped into a curb... one of the expensive ones; $4500. I guess that'* why I pay for insurance.

Yeah, pretty much. It happened pretty quick.
Wheel, Bearing, Knuckle, strut, engine cradle, etc. It adds up pretty fast.
I was able to drive it 35 miles home and to the body shop.
All better now.
