Q: Back end sitting on axle and tires.

asked by on

I made a turn and my back tire sounded like it had popped, but it hadn't. My whole back end is sitting on the axle and tires.

You broke something in the rear suspension like the strut or spring. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you to see what is broken causing the problem.
