Default 2007 rear control arm replacement

My 07's rear right control arm was bent when a car hit the tire. Since then the tires been wearing alot on the inside. Q is how hard is the repair and do I have to replace in pairs or can I just replace the bent one? Also any recommended brands or should I get an OEM new/used part? Thanks!

OE control arm might cost alot more than what an aftermarket brand can do for half the price. Most will come with 1 year warranty. You can change only the one side for now, not hard, but it could have some rusty bolts. hard to attempt without torch heat and lubricants. I would not advise in used, hard to know how long it will last.

I always say if you can afford to do it in pairs then do so.. The job will be tough without the proper tools to break the bolts loose.. I use MevoTech control arms. Sturdy, reliable, & half the price of OEM with top quality. Got em off RockAuto.com.. Food for thought..
