Curb+snow=bent lateral arms! Help

So i was having a little fun when i slid into a curb going about 5-10 mph. The wheel was pushed inwards and it looks like it bent both lateral arms pretty bad and broke the way bar end link. By the way this is on the rear passenger side. The thing is i have about $200 and don't want to mess with aftermarket adjustable lateral arms. How much are stock replacements and are sti's lateral's the same? I need the car back on the road so help is very aprecciated!

It is a 2005 wrx ej20

Get on nasioc and look for used parts. They are all over the place. Or call around to salvage yards.

No idea what years are interchangeable

Good luck

I had to change mine out last year. New, the OEM parts are roughly the same cost as aftermarket ones. The only thing with installing adjustable ones is that you have to take it in to get an alignment when you're done... which you probably need to do in any case.
