It's Dead.

Well everyone I appreciate all the help everyone gave me when I was modding my cobalt but unfortunately 2 weeks ago monday I was driving on a newly paved, slick, back road and lost control around a corner (while driving the speed limit) skidded off the road and hit a ditch, then a sign then a bush and finally stopped.
After checking out the damage the suspension is ripped up, radiator mounts are broke, most of the cables, fuel lines and brake lines are trashed from the sign and it's considered a total loss.
I walked away from it though and the sheriff was nice enough to bring me home.
I'll have pics soon. but thanks again to everyone who offered advice for mods and what not.

Glad you are okay... Was it state or county road?
All Roads are Required to have a "Friction Coat" Top layer, Find out if that section of road had a friction coat, if not, take pics of your car, and the location of the accident and the road, and call a lawyer, you will be a very rich man. I knew a guy (don't know anymore cause he got rich off of it) who lost control on his bike and was in the hospital for a month, The road he was on was one of the twisties that was under construction, and they left it without a top friction coat and a month later he lost control on a damp road. While in the hospital, his brother took pics of the road, and pieces of bike scattered everywhere and took it to a lawyer. Needless to say, the county also had to pay not just the construction company.
