Since the wheel has moved aft in the well, either the arm has come off
of the bearing housing or the stabilizer bar has come loose.  The hole
where the end of the stabilizer is so close to the ball joint at the
strut that even with everything else disconnected the wheel couldn't
move backwards very much without being at a very cockeyed angle.
