i did this over the winter time. i cracked my axle and lower control arm in half and bent my rim really badly. i wans able to fix it myself for less then 400 dollars with part from the junk yard and a rim on this site doing all the work in my driveway.

lol if you're still gonna come back to this thread so many months later i actually had basically the same accident except my front end was messed up much worse. the rear left got slightly tapped and after that i had this annoying noise when braking coming from my rear left. it turns out that it was a bad wheel bearing.
You know funny enough, I actually did. I replaced the rotor months ago... actually I've been through two of them... and I'm still hearing oscillating sounds every once in a while when there's no other noise in the cabin. I'll check that out... thanks

Oh, sorry, I forgot to update. It was the bearing and a warped rotor. Also, that corner's caliper failed prematurely about two and a half years later. Don't drive into things, kids.

Also, no body damage.

@hypor: both. imho, if the bent fender is interfering with the operation of the car, body shop first. otherwise, mechanic first.
