97 ford aspire help!

So my x drove it up a mountain. And I brought it to a Tech, And he told me i needed a Control arm and a camber kit. To allow the car to drive straight. (the right side wheel is covered outward by about a inch.)

As i replaced the control arm, I noticed the the sway bar was a lil off. So I replaced that. And it's still semi bent. And before i spend the money on a camber kit and a alignment. What do you think i should do?

Will a alignment fix the toe in? So it's aligned straight with the other wheel.

Ty in advance.

Re: 97 ford aspire help!

sway bar isn't huge, it's just a brace against flex, it doesn't hold anything in place.

You're going to need an alignment and the easiest thing to fix in an alignment is the toe. The more difficult thing to fix in an alignment is the camber as the car has a very small range of movement in that respect so that's why you may need a camber kit (or in your case "crash bolts") to correct for the damage.
