The front fender is a simple swap, with whatever else may have been damaged up there. The rear is a different story. It'* part of the body and must be fixed on the car. It'* a big dent so I don't know how well it will pop out. Find a good body shop.

well my dad was able to go up underneath the car and the only thing damaged underneath is a strut thats bent.. which is no biggie... we were kinda worried that maybe the a-frame was bent but im ok there... from the one pic you can see that the wheel is bent in..like its leaning

Fender will be an easy fix. Just bolt a new one on.

It looks like you might have done some damage to the steering knuckle and/or might have broken an axle. Have you inspected what'* lurking behind that passenger front wheel?

i really havent had it looked at real well to see what all has been damaged... just knowing the strut...if that is the case that maybe there has been damage to the steering knuckle or the axle.... about roughly what would you estimate the damage to be?

Wow, I'm very sorry this happened to you. What did the insurance company say?
My guess would be that the damage is no more than $1700 worth.

well thanks.. im sorry it happened to me too... lol It wasnt my fault though which was a good thing... but the bad news is... when I got the car... the only thing that my mom put on it was liability so there is no collision on it whatsoever.. so i have to pay outta my pocket to get it fixed...which is pretty dumb considering it wasnt my fault but thats the stupid insurance companies for you anymore

rear quarter panel also so probbaly have "stress dents" that go all the way up the pillar also the strut tower could be damaged instead on the strut
your cost is about 2k in damage with paint
