Gonna find out if it's worth fixing this.

Looks like the knuckle, strut and inner CV boot as well as a few ball joint boots are toast and obviously quarter panel.

assuming you're in Raleigh.

Pick and pull what you need and keep on rolling. Depending on how you feel about the rest of the car (do you feel it'll last you a few more years, etc), it may be worth just making the ~$300 investment to get it derivable again... Maybe. There's still a lot of variables to consider...

I was just going to use it to get back and forth from work and keep miles off my truck. She is gonna get a new car regardless. If I have to work this hard at a junk yard the parts will need to be cheap.

I should have used two 4 lb sledgehammer to hit both sides at the same time. Since I only have one I guess you shouldn't let me work on your car.
