Unhappy Rear Passenger Wheel Bent - Lateral Arm?

So, I smacked a curb yesterday pretty bad and my whole car was thrown off alignment

My rear wheel just sticks out now, and my car is dog walking...

I'm looking for parts online and I cant figure out which arm it is I need to buy.

I attached a photo of the diagram. I'm not sure if I need a lateral arm or radius rod. Someone please help



Broken arm Below...




And the left side... which apparently looks fine to me. I hope...


Always appreciate the help. My car is not driveable right now

looks to me like you at the very least need part #8

That's basically an OEM rear camber arm. I have both in my attic if you want it.

Got parts 9 and 8 replaced and the rear axle.

It still sticks out a bit, and my tire is going to be ended up wearing down.

I need control arms for the back for it to be back to normal.

I was thinking of doing this over the winter before summer starts... The very best thing you can do for your G35

Anyone know of any way to get all of those parts for around that price?

I would like to replace the control arms, and shocks/struts all around for a nice new ride this summer, but i'm adding everything up and it seems to be more in the 2-3k range with all the upper/lower control arms.

It is possible that your subframe is bent, causing the wheel to stick out.

I had the same happened to me. #8 looks visibly bent. But everthing else including #9 looks ok. Did you have to change anything else? should I just go ahead change #8 and then see if alignment works?

If 8 is bent, definitely replace it. If you want stock parts you should be able to get one for the cost of shipping from someone who has installed aftermarket camber arms. Or now might be the time to install aftermarket camber arms.
