I am looking at buying a 1967 camaro that was in an accident. It was hit buy a motor cycle in the right front fender. It hit the fender in front of the tire and hit the tire. What posible damage could there be the the suspension such as the control arms, steering linkage, tierods and everything else. How much would it be to replace any of these parts especially the control arms if they were damaged. They guy said that the frame was straight but the car is very hard to steer now. His machenic said it was probably just the suspension, but without being able to look at it what suggestions or ideas do you guys come up with. thanks

rule of thumb, walk off about 15 paces from the back of the car and look through the rear window towards the windshield. see if you can notice the bucket seats tilted either towards or away from each other, from what i can remember if they are its a very good indication the subframe has be twisted
