2002 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally 4 Cyl 2.00L

Steering & Suspension

Car wobbles side to side

I hit a pot hole and now the car wobbles from side to side really aggressively. It's a long wobble it feels like the car is going left and right about a foot at low speeds. All the tires and rims are fine.

Hopefully you parked the vehicle immediately upon noticing the issues

It obviously is not safe to use

I would suspect given it is a 2002 you had worn suspension parts that should
have been found on an annual inspection & the hole just cause a ball joint or
other parts to fail

Badly Rusted Vehicles can have all sorts of damage to the body & subframes

Time to get a newer vehicle,you'll never chase a 15 year old one to good mechanical
condition, unless you do you own work

You can not say anything is fine upon just a visual inspection

Something that was tight is now loose. Either a control arm or steering gear mount. Get her in and checked on a lift. Make them show you what is wrong.
