The absolute worst I have seen to date was with a friend who hit a pot hole and the force completely blew the strut through the top strut mount. The city paid for the full repair because they were the ones who left the massive pot hole there causing an unsafe roadway.
This should be a life pro tip. And yes. I have gone after the city for this before. When i had a police report. This time I donít. Once I hit a pot hole so hard that my rim split into two pizza rings. Not cracked or bent. Fully split down the middle. Then a 5 series right become me hit the same hole and blew out all the airbags. Then about 20 other cars pulled up one after another behind me, with various amounts of damage.

Yea so end result, I got to write of $1k in damages. Nothing else.
