Wow, that sucks!
The very first Porsche I ever owned was a 911T Targa from the early 70's. It had been poorly kept and badly mistreated, but at the time I was young and stupid (I'm not young anymore, but stupid....?) and I bought it anyway. After going through the right rear tire like it was made of butter, and with a thumbs down by allignment experts unable to get her back into alignment on that wheel, I suspect it too was a victim of a curb crash. No outward evidence, though.
Sorry for the story....I never replaced it and eventually sold the car. Sounds like a good weekend project. You might want to hit up a junk yard for the arm.

The big cast aluminum hollow 930 control arms don't bend, they break.
The steel torsion bar tube and the control arm pivot-pickup point welded onto to it next to the transaxle can bend in an impact and mess up alignment.

The 911T Mark mentioned had steel control arms and they can be bent.

Have you tried the classifieds? There was a set of 930 arms in there recently. Not cheap as you have to buy the pair.
