1983 240D, hit a curb, suspension damage

A little too fast in the rain turning into my neighborhood, into the median curb, BAM.

details of the carnage

Notice the left side guide rod, it is supposed to be straight but now it most definitely is not.

Drivers side front tire pushed back to wheel well cover.

Luckily the oil pan did not rupture.

VStech and I are going to be fixing it, any advice??
