    if car hit a curb, can that affect the suspension

    if front wheel hit a curb can that affect alignment on all wheels or only the one that hit the curb, and also can hitting the curb affect suspension or anything else,
    - car doesnt pull to left or right,however the ride doesnt seem as smooth as it used to , or isthat just my imagination

    yes it can mess up wheel arc alignment, but depending on the speed, at very low speeds I doubt and tangible damage to the suspension

    Depending on how hard you hit the curb, your alignment could be off. It doesn't matter how many wheels are out of alignment from the curb because they do all 4 wheels anyways. theres no such thing a 1 or 2 wheel alignment.

    Suspension could of been messed up too. Control arms and maybe shocks could be bent. This all depends on how hard you hit the curb though.

    Its more than likely your imagination (if at low speed). If its not pulling the suspension should be good. However the rim might be bent or the tire might have a bulge in it. Both should be very easy to see.

    one bad wheel alignment messes up the enitre car's "pull" so even though the other wheels dont have their alignment messed up itll still pull to either direction....see what im sayin son?

    depending on how hard u hit the curb it sholdn't eally messed up anything. Stock size tires are softer than tires that in the catagory of z rated. They can take hits and not affect much on the car. If your car isn't pulling or riding lumpy you should be ok.

    hell yeah, a guy in my neighbourhood tried to do a drift in his skyline but lost control and hit the curb (only doing about 40km/h)
    atleast 2000 NZD in damage, the car needed straightening, no external damage.

    like straightening the chassis.
    he didn't even hit it hard/fast, i saw the whole thing, he had no traction, got traction and instead of putting the clutch in and stomping the breaks, he just flew across the wrong side of the road and hit the curb.

    a minor hit, like if you just bumped the curb, i wouldn't worry about, but get your alignment checked, otherwise she'll be fk'd

    as long as you didn't hit it really hard, it most likely only messed up the alignment.

    well then ya it could hurt it. low speeds are for hitting a curb are like <10 mph.

    check the suspension of the wheel that hit the curb and just look for broken or bent or damaged parts. and you may want to get it checked anyways.

    You have to hit it pretty hard to knock it out of alignment but the tire balance can be knocked out if the wheel weight popped off. That does happen.

    Lol i was gonna say that.

    Doubt if your suspension is wrecked your shock absorbers will take up alot of the impact.

    OP - what makes you think the ride isnt smooth, does it feel uncomfortably bumpy ect?
