So I let a friend go off roading in my truck...horrible mistake. Long story short, he was about 5' in the air and landed wrong. So now my shocks are bent into my lca on both sides. (Pictures attached below) The wheel well covers came out as well smh....when he came back with my truck I started to feel sick in my stomach

Is there any way to fix this, or do I need to do some replacing? I'm open to all suggestions, just keep in mind i'm not looking to spend a lot of $.

The truck or the friendship? Seriously you gonna have to replace all those bent parts. If you wanna keep costs low as possible, look in the Buy Sell section. People always selling stock parts as they upgrade. Probably still gonna cost several hundred dollars. If your friend was a good one he would pay to make things right.

Ask to borrow his wife to help pick out furniture for a surprise for your mom and then return her the same way.

the only person that borrows my truck is my wife, and barely at that. tell your bud to pony up the cash, and time to help you buy new stuff and help you install it, plus money for another alignment. and blacken his eye... anyways id have to agree check the buy/sell section, id even check out the pay it fwd section. it be easier for us to help if we knew how much money you got to burn. bilsteins shocks brand new ain't very expensive but, like shoki said your looking at a few hundred bucks. alignment alone is going to cost any where between 70-100 bucks. also what gen tundra is your Tundra, is it a first gen ?

Just own it like a man. "A friend", really? My "friend" has a drug problem... My "friend" lost his ass gambling... That's painful. Hope there are no more serious parts that need replacing.

Seriously, who does that?
I wouldn't do that in my own vehicle and I sure wouldn't do that in someone else's.
Get some aftermarket shocks.

I have had rentals airborne, I have had old beaters airborne, I even had my fj airborne, maybe even my tunder a few inches while trying to make a light that has an off camber hump in road, but not actually jumped it...


But never I will repeat NEVER would I do that to a buddies anything.

I remember when I put 3800 into my 400ex engine and I had issues with clutch slippage and running wayyy lean, I borrowed a buddies bone stock J-arm banshee, I was skerred of ephing it up.... I did have fun with it cuz it was a shee, but I sure as hell didn't hold it wide open and jump the hell out of it, and it was an atv, it's made for it...

Your friend is what we properly call an asshat.


You better have done something wrong with his gf a few years back and this is payback otherwise something is wrong.

you need new shocks, fender liners, alignment, may want to make sure the rear is ok too, as well as body panel alignment.
