Need some help.. I crashed again.

Hey guys. The damn snow and ice took my car 2-night. Went into a corner and was trying to explain to a friend what happened last time I went into the corner and we lost controll. I broke my rim, pretty sure I snapped the tie rod and im not sure of the other damage. Its too cold and I dont have garage space to do it right now. Any one out there have an estimate of what new tie rods will cost if i do the labor? Also what are some other parts that could of been effected in the crash.. Any help would be great.. Thanks



P.S. The front passenger side took most of the hit if not all of it.

Tie rods are cheap. something like $30 for the inner, $30 for the rod, and $30 for the outer.

Lower control arms are about $80

Ok guys thanks for the help.. I have the car in the garage on stands right now. Nothing looks broke. But. I took the wheel off since that was broke and now I cant get the stock wheel back on. I dont know what it is, but at the top of the wheel there is an arm that wont let the wheel go back on. Any indeas... Man this sucks.

The only thing at the top would be the upper A arm. If it's sticking up too high it sounds like the upper ball joint that connects the arm to the knuckle may be hosed. I think upper arms with joint are about $70

There is no limit to what you can acheive if you don't care who gets the credit.
