I see you've got 19s just like me...I bet there are a lot of other cars out there with trailing arms that look the same, the drivers just don't know it yet. Chances are your rear wheels are pretty toed out right now.
The arms are about $50 each.
yeah the weird thing is, my car drives normally. i really hope nothing serious will result from it
