Any idea how easy that might be to spot? I asked my shop (VAC Motorsports of Philadelphia) to check out the subframe and the diff mounts/bushings while they make the repair. They didn't find anything, which isn't surprising since they had just replaced it in March.

I could bring it to a (ugh) dealer for a second opinion. If the damage is related to the collision, there's a chance I could get Geico to pay for the fix under their "lifetime collision repair" warranty.

Otherwise I need to figure out if I'm comfortable risking another diff failure or trade the car in for a Korean compact.
