Long story short, some dipshit made a U-turn in front of me on Sunday and I smacked him pretty good with my driver side front tire. The impact caused my lower control arm bracket on the axle to pretty much shear off, and in the process bent the driveshaft and smacked the yoke into the oil pan punching a hole in the process. I had it towed to a jeep dealership (not on the insurance company's approved list) and they did their own assessment which came out to about $7k in damage. I am not sure if that is just for parts, or parts and labor, but regardless that is a decent amount of money. They want to replace the entire front housing, driveshafts, ball joints, oi pan, and a few other things. I am thinking that if I can get a few of these parts upgraded at a cheaper price while they are being paid for I am going to try and do it. My question is, has anyone had experience with this type of thing and what can I expect? Thanks ahead of time!
