Suspension Parts

I owe a 2001 ZX3. I was recently t-boned and the person hit me right at my
front driver's side wheel. I drove it home and then tried to drive it the
next day and I couldn't. That wheel didn't coordinate w/ the other wheel
and the way I was steering. I took my wheel off to take a peek and noticed
a bent bar. I'm a struggling college, so I don't have money to get it fixed
at a shop. I wanted to know the exact name of the part so I can do it
myself. The piece was a thin rod connecting my wheel to a suspension-type
hose or pinion or whatever it's called. Some suggestions I've gotten
already are CVU joint, control arm, or a tie rod. It's at the rear of that
wheel (closest to the door). If anyone has any ideas, I could really use
some help.

Re: Suspension Parts

Don't you have insurance to cover those expenses or if the other driver is
at fault, won't their insurance cover it?

Buying good insurance seems a waste of time ....until you need it.
I'm talking from expensive experience. Not criticizing

Re: Suspension Parts

You say your car is a 2001. Chances are pretty good that you do have
insurance (especially if you are still paying on the car). Check with
your insurance carrier to see if the costs will be covered. Also, call
the other driver's insurance and demand that they pay. If they question
who is at fault, get a copy of the police report. As long as it shows the
other car is at fault, the other insurance should pay for damages. They
(or your insurance) may also have an allotment for rental car. Good luck

Re: Suspension Parts

You are all assuming that it was NOT this person fault and HAD insurance.

Do you not all find it strange that the original posting is some what
ambiguous.
I do not know how someone would be able to offer advise without seeing the
damage to the vehicle.
When some says "I wanted to know the exact name of the part so I can do it
myself. The piece was a thin rod connecting my wheel to a suspension-type
hose or pinion or whatever it's called"
This person is no doubt mechanically challenged he should have the car towed
to a body shop to have the thingy which is attached to the domahickey looked
at and the watcha ma-callit straighten out. Any how if the unibody is
twisted or the strut tower out of align which happens in these kind of
wrecks where the impact point is at the strut tower area, it might be
cheaper to scrap the car than fix it.

When a vehicle is in this kind of wreck and sustains this kind of damage
