Let's just say after my son allegedly drove around a corner too fast (40-50 ish) and allegedly only slammed into the curb with the right rear wheel, the wheel has some serious positive camber now and when you drive, the steering wheel pulls hard to the left. If you let go, it will probably make a left turn on its own. Can the rear suspension issue cause the front to do this?

I found some 88 lowers since that is the most likely candidate and the 88 is unique anyway. I think the trailing arm is interchangeable with several years if the lowers don't do it. Anything else I should grab before I embark on the repair mission (besides my son by the throat)? As many autocrosses as he has witnessed from the passenger seat, you would think he would know that is where you hang it out and how to drive better than that. He drove it for 4 days before his "mishap". :x

lower arm and trailing arm would probably do it, but if it were me, i'd grab the upper arm and compensator arm at the same time. it'd be like an extra $10 at a u-pull-it, and might save you a trip if those are tweaked as well.

spotting bends in trailing arms can be a bit tricky... when i did my rear disk swap, i grabbed a set of trailing arms off a DA at a u-pull-it yard. the car wasn't wrecked at all, so i figured it was ok. get them stripped, press in new bushings, re-paint, install, and one of the rear wheels has about 5 degrees of positive camber. i figure the junkyard must have tweaked it when they were bringing it on the forklift or something, but even after i pulled it back off and compared it to a non-bent one, i could only tell something was wrong by taking measurements. the moral of the story? bring a little ruler to the junkyard and measure a few points on each side to make sure they're kosher.
