Lower control arm help!

I was an accident couple months ago, some guy side swiped me (driver side) dented the door, ruined the fender, also bent inner tie rod. Now my tire sits real close to the front of the fender.i don't know if it's the c/c plates or the lower control arm. This is my daily driver so just wanted to know if I should wait to buy the lower control arms off LMR or hit up a junkyard and take the lower control arm I need off another fox.(currently on a budget) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would suspect the lower control arm rather than the C/C plate. and since your on a budget I get the lower control arm from a wrecking yard.

I also agree but I would put it up on a lift or at least jack stands and see what is going on down there.

JY, and its the A arm. When you say "lower control arm" people think the rear lower control arm.
