Ice... Wreck.

Got a lot of snow and ice in NC today and I was in a parking lot when by girlfriend hollered and I noticed a small car sliding towards my truck. I instinctively floored it and moved just enough causing her to miss my center and hit me in the rear right tire. No damage that I can see thanks to my lift and tires... But is there anything that I should check? How likely is it to shift the axel? It was only a 4-8 mph.

I was on Interstate last year when a girl went to make a lane change and didn't realize traffic had slowed. She hit me hard enough to knock the truck sideways (almost to 90 degrees). I was going about 55 MPH when she hit me. My truck had a very mild scratch on the rear bumper but it took some nice chunks out of my rim...same thing, she mostly went under the rear of my truck. It tore the h#ll out of her front end. After the wreck, it felt like the truck might be slightly out of alignment so I took it in to the shop that does all my alignments and when they compared it, there was almost no change. I do have traction bars which probably helped, but sounds like I got hit a lot harder than you so you should be fine. Like it was already said, test on the road or go back to the alignment shop that does your work so they can compare numbers.

Yes. It is a very handy way to look for an axle being slightly out of place

Maybe in a few years you might have rear axle seal leak but I bet nothing else or even that.

Good excuse for bigger tires and rims? Yes/No?.. Lol..

After spending 1600$ in tires I have the alignment flecked every oil change(my buddies). How ever I was side ways at about 40mph skipping across pavement. So the weight of my the truck at 40sideways and not be out, I believe that you should be ok, it doesnt hurt to have it checked though. If it were me I would. I baby my vehicles though.
