Hey guys, just looking to get some insight on what damage I may have caused and possible repair costs. My 2009 jetta slid as I was making a left turn. Passenger side rear wheel is turned in towards to the left about 15degrees. Dont know if the wheel locked up or not as I was about 300ft from my house and the roads where snow covered

Obviously bent steering rod at best, may have bent strut and lower control arm, this will have to be towed and inspected to find the extent of the damage done.

I repaired a similar vehicle with similar accident.

The only way to know exactly what is needed, is to have someone take the rear apart. There are several components that make up the
rear suspension. Image is attached.

In the case that I had, customer even needed a new brake rotor, caliper & carrier bracket.
