Front end control arm or ball joint? Cost?
ANSWER : It sounds like your lower control arm ball joint came apart. The fact that it came out is an indication that there is a lot of wear in the front end. You may have also damaged other components like the brake hoses or a lower control arm. The spindle may also be damaged. I recommend having the vehicle’s suspension inspected by a mechanic before getting a quote for repairs, since there may be major damage that is not so obvious.

Hello I have a infiniti fx 35 2008 model I was just told that my front end is damaged and have cause misalignments of crank and th
ANSWER : Hi there. It depends on what happened to your Infinity to cause the front end damage. If the front end impact was severe enough, and the force hit the front of your motor; specifically a harmonic balancer, it may have misaligned the crankshaft. The crankshaft is carefully balanced, like a wheel that is mounted to your tires. In order to balance the combination of the two, mechanics add wheel weights at different spots as natural weight balance of the wheel shifts due to impact with curbs, pot holes and common road obstructions. Since the crankshaft is internal, adding weight to counterbalance damage is not possible. This is why overtime an unbalanced crankshaft will eventually cause internal engine damage. Hope this clarifies things for you.

Someone ran a red light and hit my left front corner causing me to run right into them as they were still in front of me
ANSWER : Your car has one airbag (dual-stage) in the steering wheel center, which you observed had inflated along with the dual-stage passenger air bag. Some models (GS) had the option of having side air bags, stored in the side of the front seat. If an airbag is exposed, and is now hanging limp, it surely deployed. Whether it deployed properly will require the services of an auto crash investigator, an engineer who has expertise and qualifications for what to look for, including your injuries. It is possible that the "crash box" – the device under most passenger seats that makes the decision to deploy which airbags – MAY have seatbelt status information. Recent speed and other data are captured by this device as well for the purpose of deployed safety gear in a crash. Again, a crash investigator engineer will be able to answer these deeper questions.
