Unhappy what do you think i did?

today a bad thing happened.

i hit a really big pot hole. it was deep enough that i know i hit the bump stop on my left from wheel's suspension. at first i thought i might have ruptured a tire as well... but i didn't.

i drove the 2 blocks to the parking lot outside of work, and checked it out...things looked good.

but now i notice a kind of squeeking noise coming from that part of my suspension. from what i can gather, it's not the mounting on the top of the strut (in the engine compartment) but from something down in the wheel well or on the bottom of the strut...

i'm not familiar enough with subaru suspensions yet to make a really acurate guess at what it might be. i think it might be a bushing or something that got knocked out of alignment (i was turning right when i fell in the hole...) that is squeeking...but i don't know.

anybody else ever done this or seen somethin like this?

thanks for the help.

you should take your car in to get it checked out. i think you might have a bent hub. don't think you did any suspention damage. my car made the same noise when i hopped the curb earlier this year. didn't find out till i brough to the dealer.
