I see an oily film on the impact absorber. Is that what it is? If so, the absorbers are shot. They're one-shot use......

.....now on to your question.....what problems are you having? Did I miss an accident posting, or did you just discover previous damage?

You missed the accident post.

And that is repairable, but the question is, do you want to spend the money on it. It'* probably going to be a little bit of money to have that pulled out properly. Probably would need to be on a frame machine for a little bit. You may be able to rig something up and try and do it yourself, but that would be quite an undertaking, and probably take a lot of time.

Now, if you are about cutting corners, you might be able to just hammer on the shock absorber to get it level again, and then re-attach everything, but just know that that corner will be weaker if you should get into an accident again. I would also replace the shock absorber after hammering (I would do it regardless) as like wren said, they are one time use (technically)

Either way, that doesn't look like fun. I have noticed up in my area and up to rochester there are several 95 SE'* that need a motor or tranny that you may want to consider and then swap yours into it.

you are the best will.... i been trying to figure out what that fluid was because it was all over my fog lights which are right under the shock absorbers and the shock absorber it self... so im just leaking an oily substance from the shock absorber. thats good to no..

here is the link to my accident post with pics...i thought you seen it will.. i thought you were the one to move my post to (on the road and at the track).

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=88616

so what can i do to fix my car besides hitting it with a 8 pound sledge hammer i got...?

and is it safe to put it back together like this and drive it,? whats the worst that could happen..... i really cant afford a body shop....
