Hey guys I managed to source out an airbag, lower control arm rear (saw it was bent where the wheel hub connects), steering rack, and front left suspension with lower control arm, knuckle, brake caliper etc attached off a parts car for 320. I will be using my oem struts in the meantime so no need to pay for that and I have an extra set of adjustable end links. The seller also has the rear subframe with both left and right wheel hub attached for 400 and the front one for 50 dollars if needed, the shop will inspect all the damages tomorrow, I am not too worried about cosmetics right now, just want the car back up and running and hopefully aligned properly.

As for the airbag, do I need to replace my impact sensors too or am I ok with replacing the curtain airbag and send the airbag module out to be reset. Only the driver curtain airbag went off.

I dunno about sensors but the module can be reprogrammed. I think it was like $80.

Take it from someone who's been bit by this before and wait until you get the info back from the shop. You gave it to them for a good reason, give them time to inspect it and get back to you with better information before you start investing in anything. Even if you're going to do the work yourself, you need to understand what you're getting into first. Otherwise it'll be an never-ending project each time you peel back a layer of the onion with a "should have been simple" repair and before you know it you'll be 5k deep into repairs wishing you didn't start it in the first place.

If the car has gone out of square, diamond/parallelogram or if the towers have moved then you most likely can`t just bolt it back with parts. If you know how to check or even view the panel gaps you can get an idea. Again wait for the shop as these cars bend easy.
