I need help! I accidentally ran into a tree with my drivers side tire and it bent my control arm, so I replaced it. Then I went to take it for a test drive but it was difficult to put it into gear and there was a vibration and softness in the clutch pedal. Also my steering alignment was messed up. I did replace the clutch slave cylinder hoping it would fix the clutch issues but it didnt change much. If I pump the clutch pedal it goes into gear easier but it still shudders when I release the clutch pedal and it wont shift while driving until the rpms go down. Could hitting the tree with the tire cause these (5speed) manual transmission problems? If so, is there any suggested areas to inspect?
