    Well, It's Wrecked

    I guess some people don't understand the concept of the red light. Wife and youngest were coming home from work yesterday evening about 4:30 and took it in the drivers side rear wheel. Guy claims he was "only going 20". My wife as well as witnesses claim she was almost flipped over. 20?Yeah right. He told the officer "35-40?uh 20" when asked about his speed. Wife and junior-cubed (youngest of three) were ok. Just shaken up. He thought it was a thrill ride. The passengers side track par was popped off the of the rearend. The rebound bushing on the drivers side is MIA. The wheel is toast. The rear hatch is out of alignment as well as the the rear drivers side door. We're talking mm here but I can see it. Its the inspector in me that notices these things. Plus the fact that the rear hatch made a slight crunching sound while closing. To be continued?

    Bummer.
    Thankfully everyone is OK. The vehicle can be repaired/replaced. Can't do that with your loved ones.
    Keep us up-to-date on damage repair.

    Don't you mean the "A" did its job Steve? I know, its just an undercover D. Anyway I got under it this evening with the camera and flashlight. Upon closer inspection it appears that the rear axle took all of the impact. The out of alignment rear door, hatch and bumper appears to be just that, alignment (hopefully.) Nothing appears bent and a lot of the plastic fasteners are loose. The inner fender liner on the drivers side was knocked loose. Like I said earlier, the upper track bar was knocked off and bent, there are "clean" marks on the sway bar indicating the axle moved laterally each way about 3". Also ther is a gouge on the shield on the gas tank where the pinion hit it. That mark was from the rebound. Look under your D's and Aspens and see how far that's. The upper trailing arm on the drivers side has a big ding from hitting the frame. And of course there's a small chunk missing from the inner side of the drivers side rear wheel where it hit either the frame or the lower trailing arm. Amazing that it didn't shatter the wheel. The guys adjuster is supposed to look at this week. I'm going for a minimum of complete rear axle replacement and all 4 trailing arms and both track bars.

    Great to hear everyone is okay. Yes, the AspenD did it's job and took the impact for your family. Ex-Nascar driver Rusty Wallace credits his Gen2 with saving his life in an accident.

    Let the adjuster and a good bodyshop take care of everything. If it needs a new rear axle, it'll get one. Have that hatch gone over with a fine tooth comb.

    Had it been a Gen3 unibody and not a body-on-frame Gen2, it could be a totally different story in terms of the overall damage.

    Pic? x2!
