Hello,
My 2005 Sequoia was hit by someone (Unidentified). They swiped the front left side of my suv before rear ending the car parked infront of mine. It looks as if the tire was clipped and the force snapped the lower ball joint to brake, the lower control arm is now on the ground, the power steering is leaking and the rim is broken. I’m including pictures.
To say the least, I have only liability, no gap insurance, and a car infront of my house. What kind of damage would render the car salvaged, does anyone have a diagram with the parts# of the wheel, so I can see what parts need to be bought.

also probably a long Shot, but if I call Toyota HQ and go in for the frame reinforcement/replacement, could I do that with the state of condition the car is in now Wheel Automotive side marker light Automotive parking light Tire Car

From my view of things... you will need (1) lower ball joint, (2) rack assembly and (3) a tire and wheel. I think you need (2) because of the fluid leak. It is obvious the outer tierod end is bent and the inner tierod end is bent. Bit I am thinking there is seal damage due to the leak.

You may need (4) a lower control arm or (5) an upper control arm, but it is hard to tell from the pictures. If you can, jack it up and look for deformations in the control arms. The alignment after the repairs will also tell you if you need them.

You are correct! I need 1 2 and 3… the rack had a small leak and was planning on trying to reseal it with a kit, but it might be past that, I ordered a new ball joint, inner & outer tie rods and a sway bar link since it got bent. The upper control arm housing (frame) got slightly bent… to be more specific it’s the 2 little arms the upper control arm connects too.
I’m not sure how much dmg that’s done
