HELP: AHHHHHH (Long Post)

Hey Guys,

While I'm not a car-guy, anyone with half a brain should not be in the situation I'm currently in.

I've left my '89 Camry on jack stands for 2-3 months now. With school being finished I decided today that I was going to put in a weeks of hard work, and fix it up to the point that it could be sold.

Unfortunatly, I've come across this horrible problem that may send the Camry right to the junker.

Take a look.









You can see the jacks underthere from the rearview, and how the wheels are now unbalanced. I first noticed it when looking at the sideview. From the side view you can see the 'A' gap leaves the brake and drum and all that waaaaay too close to the ground. I don't think I've got a prayer of getting it jacked high enough to slap a tire on.

I think I'm screwed!

What is your advice as to what I should do with this vehicle? It is an 1989 Camry. It does have significant (But hadly brutal) amounts of rust on it. Also, it has a slight Oil leak in the front, which a former mechanic and family friend guessed was a cracked transmission seal.

Now consider,

I had planned to sell it to a buddy of mine for $500CDN, but even then it's probably worth a little more on the open market. There were a couple problems, but nothing I'd consider overwhelming until my discovery of this.

(Try not to laugh too hard. I reliaze that I'm an idiot without hearing it from everyone. ahahaha.)


EDIT: You guys said the pictures aren't working. Check the attachments or they should be on my photobucket 'dopewiththepope' saved as Low.jpg and RearView.jpg.

Hope that helps!

I guess by the tone of the thread you think the frame has twisted, or are you concerned that the shocks havent rebounded?

The links should be fixed.

I hope they are, 'cause I don't know sh*t all about this!
