I hit a big one once, and it blew out the ball joint on my control arm. It was so bad that when I jacked up the front of the car and grabbed the wheel, I could literally move it to and fro with ease. It was horrible. Think it also destroyed my shock tower hat/mount as well. Potholes ring damage all the way from the tire and wheel into the shock and control arm, sometimes tie rods, bearings, etc.
