    If you get down low, I suspect you can take pictures of what might have broken. That would be very helpful.

Difficult to say without pictures. Based on what you said I would speculate it is definitely suspension related. Badly damaged or destroyed shock absorber-, MacPherson strut (another type of shock absorber configuration), broken coil spring, stabilizer link snapped in two are my guesses. Must have been one hell of a pothole.

  • It was and I didn't see it until it was too late as it was pitch black would you have any idea what it would cost it's a 06 reg mini

  • @Polly - There's really no way to know how much it's going to cost to fix something. It could be a couple hundred to several thousand quid/dollar/denero/juan/[insert currency of choice]. Aug 6, 2017 at 0:51
