Control Arms Fitment 2010 WRX sedan - Help

Okay so I was on my way home last night turning on my road when some Toyota hit a dip and started sliding on ice so I swerved to avoid him and I hit a curb going about 20-25mph. This was all less than a 1/4 mile from my damn house too, and of course the bastard just drove away. I pulled in my driveway and immediately took the tires off to see the damage and it's very obvious that my control arm is ####ed. Here are some pics could someone please assess the damage and if anything needs to be replaced besides the control arm? I see that ball is completely torn off so that too... I don't know if it's safe to drive to a shop or have it towed, IDK.







Also - I found aluminum STI front control arm replacements... but it says for the 02-03 WRX Sedan.
STi & WRX Performance Parts: STi Aluminum Control Arm Kit, '02-'03 WRX Sedan

Does anyone know if they're the same fitment as the OEM control arms for my 2010? ANY input greatly appreciated!

I would get it towed. Did you use the [IMG] tags to post your pics?

Call a dealer and ask for part #'s. I doubt they are the same.

Good luck. I would have hit the guy.

Just like when you see a dog/animal running across the street... I don't swerve. Eff that noise.

FIXED!!

I hope the damage isn't that bad and it still has to be less than a totaled car. So, while it sucks pretty bad...it could've been a lot worse.

PS. Let me know if you want the IMG links to edit your post above.
