help me out on this one, i have been driving for awhile

so today my main control arm snapped, the one that the strut attached to.
the car kind of bottomed out, but since i have 18 rims with low profile tires, so the rim lip was scratched by the fender, wheel cave in the fender is bert it pretty bad too.

also the lover lip is off.

i wasn't not sure what to do, I called progressive started a claim, since its really a mechanical issue and not my fault i believe they should cover it.

the local shop i take the car too closed today. but i had it towed there.

what do you guys think, maybe s4 bumper
any suggestions, adjuster will contact me tomorrow

Lower lip should go back on, if not, ecs sells them. new control arm and you're fine, if your axle popped out youre going to need more tranny fluid.
