My girlfriend wrecked the terc. HELP!!


So today my girlfriend lost control of her car and hit a curb at about 25-30mph and hit the curb on the passenger side. From taking the wheel off I can see the tie rod, cv axle, and control arm is bet. The fender is pushed back to where it scrubs the door when you try and open it. Also the wheels are destroyed on the passenger side. I'm trying to figure out if insurance is going to total it or is it fixable? Please any input will help. Anything else I should be looking at to be damaged? Possible frame bent? Please let me know what you guys think

Sounds totaled. On the flip side Tercel bodies can be sourced fairly cheap.

Well I attempted to drive it home and the cv axle snapped. I haven't noticed any frame damage so I'm going to keep it and help her get something else. So first things first I'm ordering a new axle, control arm, and tie rods which I already have. Hopefully there was no damage done to the transmission or engine. But I figured since parts are so cheap I can try to fix it and take my time with it.

It's gonna be the frame and mounting points for the suspension that are key. If the mounting points are out of position the car is toast. If they were moved/bent the car will never track straight. :(



I wants to go fast but I got's no cash! :)
