Suspension Problem...

First of all, howdy. I'm currently checking out a future project, a '95 240sx.

It has apparently been "drifted" over a curb and through a barbed wire fence. The passenger front tire is pretty much destroyed and the underlying suspension isn't much better. There is a lot of bent metal under there...

I can probably get it for pretty cheap as the owner is a friend who just wants it gone. I just want to know what to look for in terms of front suspension.

I know that I'll probably end up having to take pictures and posting them to get a real response, but I was hoping...

Also, can you give me links to some 240sx online stores that I might be able to get prices on parts to fix this thing?

Thanks a lot, guys...

Most important would be getting the frame checked out....

Other than that, front T/C rods, tie rods, etc aren't expensive, and if it's a project car, you should upgrade these anyway

Would I need to take the car to a shop, or is there any way to check the frame myself?
