Bent control arm

Here's a shot of my front control arms which I just had replaced. Top is the culprit in case you can't see the bend clearly. No wonder I couldn't get the car into alignment

One of the previous owners slammed the car into a curb. It must have been a bad spin out because this was the front left control arm and the rear right strut was also bent.

My car was neglected and abused before I owned it. However, it's new life is much better with me
