hit huge pothole, need some advice

Hi 1addicts,

I have a 128 and am lowered on 135 shocks and Eibach springs. I also have stock 135 rims. I had a full car and couldn't avoid this huge pothole.

Long story short, I drove over the pothole and the car at first didn't track straight.
It got worse, and I felt some vibration, so I pulled over to inspect. My rear left tire had some ridiculous camber now. I had an appointment to make, so I kept on driving and it felt like the rear wanted to fishtail and when I applied the brakes, car would shudder. No crazy vibrations in the steering wheel. I also hear some thuds now and then.

I tried to do a search, but couldn't really find anything of help. I tried Google and it would appear that it could be a broken rear axle. Maybe busted shock or spring? Anyone with experience in this matter? I would greatly appreciate the help, and if there is good information online that I am overlooking, I apologize in advance.

Thanks for the help!
