There was a piece of firewood-like log in the road.
like one of these:


Car at 10 oclock of me made quick move to avoid it but sent it spin-flying my way.
My left front wheel took it head on and result was a hard jolty thump.
I was at round 60 mph so I suppose it's like hitting a neighborhood road bumper at that speed.

There was no visible damage nor anything I can tell driving it.

What should I look for to make sure nothing is messed up or should I take it to
a suspension shop, have a pro inspect it under the hoist ?

"Head on"? Sounds like that means THE TIRE. In which case I'd say, very likely nothing wrong.

Anything else, I think all we can say is "maybe," and yes, have it looked at.
But I wouldn't go to a suspension shop, I'd go to Acura service -- it's more general.

Larchmont, who took a hard bump yesterday. Not the car, but himself. :eek:

(All is fine.)

I wouldn't worry about unless it bounced up and hit something under the car. The worst I'd be worried about if was mine was the alignment.

Yes, luckily it was the LF tire that took the bump.
I drove the car up the stool ramps today and checked the rubber boots.
No signs of leaks or bubbles or bents.

But the damn ramp put a bit of scratch on the bottom of the spoiler (of the body kit)

How's that for irony??

But good to hear that the main thing checked out OK.

The shocks are designed to absorb the impact of such ... If your tyres didn't blow, it's acceptable without the shock range.
