Ouch...I'm no expert but on the top of my head, control arm may be damaged, might need a new strut assembly, probably sway bar links as well, did you fvck the bumper too?

Check these:

Control arms[front/rear], trailing arms, axles, speed sensors, tie rods, sway links, struts/shocks, and everything they mount to.

It's weird that the rear has positive camber, the trailing arm is rigid enough to just snap in half. At least, that's been my experience.

Stupid passenger side window regulator about to go out. Have the part in my garage, guess I have to install it soon. Any recommendations for keeping the vapor barrier intact?

Peel off slowly and carefully. Reapply with a heat gun or blow dryer and you will be golden.

Yes although the only thing I had was some pet stain remover it worked quite well for the couple of stains in my carpet. Seats are super easy to take out takes about 5 mins each seat, coupes are actually easier to take out the seats cause the seat belts aren't attached to the seat like on my sedan but it was only an extra 2 nuts to get that off. A lot of people just say to use compressed air to get under the seats but I prefer to just take them out.... I thought about doing a DIY on how to remove seats but I'm sure if you search someone has already done one, pm me if you have any questions

Did that not long ago. Turned out to be the little door that opens/closes with a speaker attached to it.. So obnoxious considering it won't stay closed. I used a piece of black tape and the sound is gone.

I think it might be the tire iron I have resting on the spare wheel but I have to be certain.
