2005 scion xa tire/wheel issue

Hi everyone,

I've never done this and I'm if anyone can help, but I was driving this morning and I hit a curb and this is how it happened. I was sliding on snow and ice. I tried to correct myself And the wheels didn't move, the steering wheel moved but the car kept going towards the curb, and I was pumping my brakes was not on them completely. So I hit the curb and now the the tire on the passenger side is back up against the inner fender. I've replaced the lower control arm tire rod and the sway bar linkage a few months before this so they are all still pretty brand new, but my question is could I have messed up all that again? The first pic is the good tire side no damage and the second is the side I'm asking about.

Yes, you could have. I'm not familiar with the suspension that Toyota used in the xA, but it seems pretty obvious that you've damaged at least one of the locating parts. A quick Google search seems to show that the lower control arm would provide the fore and aft location. So check it and the crossmember that it bolts to.
