How extensive is the damage? *PICS*

long story short, the NSX as what ive been told, hit a rock and the damage is on the front right wheel.
Judging from the pictures attached, does anybody know what needs to be replaced?
also where can I find the parts for this car other than buying it new?

The car is located in Asia, looking to buy parts here and ship it there.

Ask for better pictures.. UCA? LCA?
I'd say your looking at the full strut replacement, possibly LCA and whatever that piece infront is (looks like something sheared right off)

I just went and looked at pictures from another NSX Suspension walkaround (from Edmunds) and the LCA is definitely missing. It does look like it sheared right off... that shiny half-circle is what's left.

I'd be damn worried about the car after such damage.

Thanks for the legwork roastpuff.

I'd say your buddy hit a curb, not a rock. And the difference in pictures just confirms this.

thanks for your help guys.
i guess what he meant was a curb not rock. lol
Shantz: ill ask for VIN # when I get the chance and pm u.

he told me the whole suspension is done. so atleast that I know.
so according to what I got so far is full suspension, LCA, arms.
does the axel look bent?

any place you guys can recommend me to find used parts for a good price?


again, thanks for the help!

Yeah from what everyone else has said needs to be replace: Strut, lca + maybe uca, rack. I would also look at the knuckle, ball joints, sway bar + endlink for damage as well given how the control arms look.

To answer your question given that is is the front of an nsx there is no front axle.

And a good place to look for used parts for a start would be nsx forum, I think it is called nsxprime.com or something like that maybe someone could correct me on that.

that damage looks bad

I dont want to scare you, but maybe the frame is bent a little. Last time I crashed my corolla, I pretty much needed to change the LCA + Steering Hub unit (bearings) + Top hat of my suspension. Even with that much replacement, I still needed camber bolts at like 2.5 degrees for my wheel to be perpendicular to the road and reached factory OEM acceptable camber range... so with out the bolts I will be running some major positive camber... (you know the bolts you use for he hella flush scene)

And I dont know how work can be done with aluminum compared to high strength steel. So good luck to your friend...

upper shock mount is probably bent out of shape too

ur friend most likely jumped a curb at high speed or understeered into a curb hard, definitely no rock can do that damage, unless it was a bolder lol
