So I often felt a very slight judder at motorway speeds but very faint.

A cyclist crashed into my passenger door, with my dear friend driving. It was a new door jobby, and touching up two panels.

At around 70 it seems to be worse than ever. It's not on braking, no more uphill than downhill. It's less noticeable at slower or faster than 70. My MPG has dropped from an avg. of 52 to 48 as-well.

I've had the tracking and balancing re-done on what is 4 new Continental tyres. Had my brakes sanity checked. I don't even know if it could realistically be connected to the cyclist smashing into the passenger door and am looking for a likely list of offenders?

Alloy damage?
Suspension jolted, shocks?
Worse?

I have the Type S 18” Storm alloys, are they really likely to get dented or buckled? They seem strong to the point there’d required a serious kerb or pot hole.

Other than that, looks like it might be a shock or something then. Can they be picked up and fitted cheap enough? By the time I’m paying labour to have the corners investigated I may as-well have 2 shocks on standby?
