i was doing about 45-50 on my way to z-fever in tampa when my rear swung out from behind me and my back driver tire/rim hit pretty hard facing it inward and my passenger rear tire leaning out at the bottom. is it the control arms or tie rod? everyone seems to think i may have bent the frame?:( plz help!

i doubt you bent the frame, your rear hit the curb? you don't have a tie rod in the rear, it's probably a combination of lower control arm, traction rod toe arm and ruca since you hit that hard. check out all the arms.

ok, but everyone was saying it probly the frame cuz my trunk wont open now.

Thanks for the comic relief but you should take this down before you get yelled at by a mod.

Doubt you bent the frame, your sub frame could be jacked up though, which can tweak the car a tad. It wont necessarily bend the frame, it could straighten out once you get the messed up sub frame off.

heres the two rear tires

Pictures don't really help too much, but just judging by the unequal gaps in the trunk from left to right, it looks like something on the chassis twisted a bit causing the trunk to sit uneven which is causing the latch to bind. Depending on what kinked and how bad, you may be able to adjust both the trunk and the trunk latch to get it to fit.

In the meantime, it looks like you'll need to climb into the trunk by folding the rear seat down and unbolt both the trunk and trunk latch from the inside. If you're lucky, unbolting the trunk should give you enough slop remove the trunk without removing the latch.

Drifting in flipflops. The true definition of BRO.

Sounds like someone tried to drift and messed up. Just jacked the car and inspect. Thats the best thing you can do then report back

Pictures of the subframe would help better than pictures showing wheels. Pull the rear wheels off and take a good picture of both sides and slide under the car taking a picture of the frame/mounting points on the subframe.

I would take this time to replace all rear suspension components.

All new bushings, lcas, etc.

dont do that shit on one side only

Like it's been stated before, post pictures of subframe. Jack up the car takes pictures from the side that you hit.
Next times try not to hydroplane.
