I took a sharp turn lost control and hit the curb going like 40mph[headbang], as soon as i hit the curb i knew it wasnt going to be good. It looks like i bend the A arm and snapped the control arm luckily there was no leaks. Now I'm just waiting for monday so i can take to a mechanic.[wrench] Does anyone have an idea how much it's going to cost me? tia

mine broke on me too. new control arm and everything was good again. cost 214 for the part and another 93 for labor which was a bit much. you might want to look into an aftermarket kit that replaces all 8 since they tend to go bad over time.
