Angry Bottomed-out and dented subframe.

Will this have any effect on the car? It was dented inward.

Doesn't look too bad. Have the alignment checked though.

Luckily the front end of these cars is pretty solid.

i would check the trans lines for leaks, i think there is one for the power steering too if im remembering my cars right. would hurt to check rad connections for leaks too since all of those things run above there

My Bonneville'* subframe took plenty of abuse like that, and it turned out all right.

Just a word of caution: I heard an awful noise while driving one night, then found my splash guard looked like yours and was dragging on the ground. You may want to consider taking it off entirely.
