1998 Saturn SL1 Question: Slid into a curb, affected camber on front driver-side wheel

 

Question

Son hit a slick spot going around a corner, and the front driver-side wheel slid sideways into a curb, causing a bit of positive camber. It doesn't look like anything was broken, but it may have bent the sway bar in. Can this be "un-bent", or are we looking at replacement?

    An alignment shop can measure how far off the alignment is off and look for chassis damage, Wheel Works, Big O, Firestone, Good Year, I am sure there are many good aliment shops in Folsom.
