Default WOW! PLEASE HELP!

Hey, today I was driving my stampede down the road and attempted to steer at into my driveway. It was going about 50 mph and clipped a wooden flower box and shattered the side of my beloved stampede. I'm not even sure what parts I will need to replace because I'm a beginner and this is my first crash. I posted some pics so if you guys could help me figure out what parts I will need to purchase that would be awesome. thanks a lot

That does not look to bad, it looks like the front steering hub, i`m fairly new at this to, so i don`t no all the part names, and the front shock. Your best bet is go to the web site that sells that truck and they shoud have a list of spare and upgraded parts, go through all the parts and find the one`s that match your broken one`s, the good thing about this is that they are not upgraded parts that you broke, so they won`t cost as much and now you can get the upgraded ones for a couple $$ more and make your truck look better and make it stronger, but you got to watch out for solid objects, they will jump out and bite you as they have done to you, unless you are rich, i`d stay away from them. I was triing to show off in front of a car in a parking lot and hit the gas as i was passing the car and ran right into the back wheel of the car and broke the shock tower. So i learn`t my lesson.
There is lots of site`s that will have your truck so if you don`t find your truck at a site right away, keep looking !!

Good Luck

Let me no how it turns out F.B. ( your new nick name - Flower Box = F.B. )

Later

its not hard to repair you need a Phillips screw driver a small flat head for the little e clips and the little 4 way wrench just look at the other side to see how its together its pretty easy
