Unhappy 1992 honda prelude suspension problems

during winter i was drifting around, i came around a corner and slammed the curb going about 20 mph, the back end hit first and popped over the curb, then the front end hit, the back steely was super pinched/bent in and the front had a little pinch in it, i already know i need new bushings and bolts and a new driver side cv shaft, but the steering wheel hangs to the right and the car pulls all over the place, ill take it onto gravel roads and it will just pull everywere it wants and on wet roads and snow covered roads, but as for dry surface you cant tell as much, also at high speeds the steering wheel vibrates prretty bad, thus i think its both my sway bars and linkages, i tried testing it, i jacked her up and tried moving the wheels to see if it was ball joints, tie rods or wheel bearing but the wheel didnt move at all, the linkages to my sway bar on the driver side up front look a little bent and the rear driver side one one looks totally fubarred, i would like to see if anyone has any input ask all the questions that you want

thanks for the input, much love to my fellow tuners

maybe if try drifting again but this time try to hit the other side of your Lude it will get straight?


It's funny when a you say "I was drifting" lol

So you mean to say that you've been driving around with it since the winter like that?

Wow.

Default 1992 honda prelude s suspension again!!

im trying to figure out whats gone bad in my rear left suspension, im pretty sure its my wheel bearing cuz of a growling noise, the wheel moves side to side but not up and down could this be a bad tie rod or bad ball joint also? im just starting out with suspension so im a newbie, any advice is helpful thank you!
