This is the best way i can explain it. Im not very knowledgeable on things like this so bear with me - i was driving a friend home last night and i hit the mother of all pot holes. Im honestly surprised it didn't just obliterate my e46 entirely. Immediately after hitting it i can hear this terrible clank and bang from the rear passengers side. Everytime i go over even the smallest dip in the road. I got it home, jacked up and pulled the liners out of the trunk and found this. (One picture is of the drivers side coilover which seems to be fine for reference to the busted one) any advice, or a how to would be much appreciated.
