AfterMarket Suspension Parts?!?!?!?!

Ok..i did a dumb thing and let my friend drive my car...in the process he cracked my wheel..err, more like destroyed it...in any event, im pretty sure he may have bent some components to my suspension. i was wondering if anybody knew of any companies that produce aftermarket suspension parts such as: upper and lower control arms, tie rods, tie rod ends...and things of that nature. if so, please let me know what companies..and what you think would be the best to go with if you know. thanks.

Damn... I hope you guys can still be friends.
I haven't looked into suspension components like that, but I saw this thread a while back. It's a bit much;

Maybe contact some vendors and see if they have stock pieces laying around???

are the aftermarket control arms you are looking at cheaper than OEM? OEM control arms are really good. i wouldn't recommend adjustable control arms unless you are a hardcore racer

ok heres the thing...is it easy to bend the stock lower control arms..i wouldnt think it would be. Im not 100% sure there bent..i was just kinda going on the fact that i couldnt get it back to the degree of camber i had it at...but i assume there could be some other factors in play that could have something to do with that. im gonna look deeper into it as far to see if my stockers are bent...but just incase people are curious...i did find some aftermarket lower control arms, tie rods (toe adjusting rods) and tie rod ends for the CT9A chassis. they are made by Nagisa Auto from japan (NAMS) they make some pretty beasty circuit cars. The front two are around $1400 dollars and the rear are about $750...for the lower control arms... thats why i plan on sticking with stock ones....but if anyone is hardcore into it..and needs the extreme angles these babies can get..you can find them at www.more-japan.com . thanks for the help guys.
