What breaks and causes negative camber?

I feel like this is a really elementary question... something broke in my suspension causing my driver front wheel to sit with negative camber plus a bunch of clanks and rubber rubbing sound when I backed into my spot. On my way in to work, I hit a deep pothole and there was a sheet of steel that may have flipped up an hit something under my car.

I had it delivered to my dealer, but it's end of day......What broke?

A number of things come to mind;
Lower ball joint failed
Control arm failed
The subframe failed
Bracket attaching the strut to the spindle failed.

No way of really knowing until some one looks.

Service Advisor said the strut broke! I haven't seen it yet. Steeda is up the road, so I picked up a replacement and it's getting installed. They're saving all the parts so I can see what happened and show Steeda. The strut mount was fine (Steeda HD mount).
