My first time posting here, let me know if I posted in the wrong place.

Vehicle: V50 2.4i 2007 fwd

Cause: Car slide, rear right wheel hit the curb hard in the snow.

Problem: Visually bent wheel, bent lower rear control arm.

Questions:

1. Do I need to swap the spring in in the picture? Sway bar links?
Knuckle? There is a gap, looks bigger than before
Front control arm and upper control arm doesn't have visual bent, should I swap those too?

2. Different suspension
How do I determine sport vs dynamic vs comfort suspension components?

3. Parts
In my area there aren't any s40/v50s in the junk yard. But I heard some Mazda and Ford may share the same suspension components. I found some during my research but not too sure about it, Mazda 3 2004 - 2013 and Ford Focus 2000 - 2011. What suspension do those have? (In the sense of sport vs dynamic vs comfort)

4. VIDA repair Manual, which one should I get? or do I even need it?

Without being there to look at it, the rear subframe could have gotten bent. You may want to take the reason suspension apart and inspect the subframe.

Can't tell what's the blue circle but I would just replace the obvious and see if the other parts attaches to it okay then have an alignment check. Regardless, there will be a little expense to get it check out.

You can find what suspension you have by looking On the label with the paint code on it. I found this on my V50 with the first 2 numbers 44 telling what springs came with it. The wife C30 has 14, so it makes a difference.
