Insurance work on FJ40 in San Jose area

my cousins cruiser was hit by a lady at a 4 way stop, hit his rear passenger tire. Long story short, the rear axle housing twisted under the body, so looking at it from the rear it looks like it has 4w steering and it is about to makie a left. anyone in the san jose area do any landcruiser insurance work? i dont want to take it to any auto body shop. please let me know. i called custom cruisers in gilroy, waiting on a call back, but anyone know any other shops?

Custom Cruisers doesnt really do insurance work. HE can do the physical repairs as far as putting a new axle under it if you bring the parts in or he can get your new parts for it.

Does it need body work or a new rear axle? If its a new rear axle, I would take it to a shop that does frame work too, Its alway better to make sure then to be sorry down the line later on.

Make sure you check frame. I was hit in my last 40, let the woman drive away because I didn't notice any damage... And the frame was tweaked from the tinyest little tap. There is a chance if it bent rear axle housing

ill make sure to check, her ins co is sending out their estimate guy to look at it, but i am sure he doesnt know anything about cruisers. so it will be interesting what kind of estimate of damage he gives.
