If your paying someone to install the control arms, your looking at around 700 for both control arms. But just one idk the price of the part and probably 200 labor.

Have you gotten it fixed yet?

I did something similar in my '11 and my wheel got pushed back too but it wasn't touching the fender yet. I replaced the lower control arms on both sides because I got a good deal on some GT500 arms. Had to swap ball joints though.
But anyway, after I installed the new lca's I noticed the the side that had been damaged was still slightly pushed back about an inch. Turns out my K member was bent. I'm still rolling with it like that. It was able to be realigned like that but if you look closely, you can see the wheel is not centered in the wheel well.

Man that sucks. Sorry to hear about this. If you need a stock rim I have a couple that I picked up from a wrecked GT/CS. They have some rash, however it can get you through in the meantime.

Some people are so clueless when they drive.

Insurance is paying for it, I just have to pay my deductible of $1000, I need 2 new rims and I wonder if I can get rims I want from AM they are cheaper than oem, guess it up to the adjuster.

I think I have seen that the center caps on the AM wheels are smaller than the OEM wheels. Just look into that and make sure.

Good luck.

How long do y'all think it would take a body shop to fix this?

Sorry that happened to you...

A body shop will be a couple days fixing that. If they don't have to order any parts.

I know that it's counterintuitive, but you should just hold your ground and let the person hit you in these situations.

Best to have a buddy at a body shop thatll up that price so you can meet your deductable. Ins adjusters arent gonna sit there and watch them fix it and watch you put a g in their hands. Get them to send ins co a price to fix they send a check and u do as you please with it. Least thats how my one wreck ive had was

Sucks on not knowing anyone. An adjuster always comes to look at it for a "rough" estimate to determine if totaled or not other than that they dont dig into deep in drive terrain or undercarriage just body and guessing what else could be damaged

This **** happened to me 2 years ago. I had to buy new wheels and they said I was at fault for failure to maintain control. Despite the fact that I had witnesses and the lady admitted to what happened I was still considered at fault for making the decision to curb my car at 45mph instead of t-boning her. The officer mentioned that if I had hit her, it would have been her fault but since I avoided the accident, you know, being a good driver and all, it was my fault.

It was all bull****, all it taught me was to just hit the idiots who make mistakes, make them pay for repairs. I laughed when he said it was a failure to maintain control, I know how to drive my car.

Not sure if you're being serious. In the situation I was in, there were two choices, plow into her car or steer into the curb. I chose the option that didn't involve hurting anyone. I can almost guarantee that option one would have totaled my car.

I wasn't going to make a claim against my own insurance. I paid out of pocket for a new set of wheels and tires.

I feel this pain all to well as I nailed a curb with the drive side front. I took it to the shop just to see what was out of whack and looked to just be a bent wheel, bent strut mount and and strut. I am getting ready to take it back and see if an alignment can be done yet. I bought a sve lowering kit that had shocks, struts and springs from Late model and GT500 strut mounts. I noticed after I hit the curb my camber was way off and my fender was a a lot closer to my door. I really should have taken it to the body shop and had it checked out more completely.

My wife had a similar situation happen to her. Some idiot was backing out of a parking space, not paying attention to oncoming traffic. So to avoid getting hit, she swerved over into the curb and ended up destroying two of her new 19" Lexani's that I put on her Sonata. Not even two weeks after getting them!!

Glad you are ok and made out well.

If you need some rims let me know.

Funny, something similar happened to us some time back as well.
These cars are notorious for the rims being pushed back in to the fender
