sounds like a control arm . . . & maybe a tie rod. How fast were you going?

i had a similar problem but i guess in a crazier incident. I hit the wall on central expressway probably doing around 55 mph after sliding with the brakes on( i wasnt on ice, it was damp roads) anyways it totally cracked my rim with a 7 inch crack along the circumfrence. I Had a bent strut, which i think i would check first before control arm cause aparently i was told the strut would go before the Control arm.iwas it a frointal impact or more of a side impact my was mainly pressure from the side.
