Thanks guys! the engine bay hasnt been touched since i owned the car so it could be a hella lot worse, but yes it going to get gussied up sometime rather soon i hope!

As far as springs go, I have no idea what I'd get to be honest. Is it true that my struts wont last as long with the springs on because of higher stress on them? I need to do my research

the whole passenger side tire/rim was at a 90* angle to what it normally is.. I had to replace the whole passenger side strut/suspension components along with the whole sub frame that holds the motor n trans in and such. after all that was done we got it running perfectly straight and true and i havent had an issue since so woohoo.. nothing like a cheap car with 9000 miles! i have a picture of the before damage in my glovebox but id have to scan it in order to post it on here.
