Car sitting lower on one side.

so my wife slid and and ran into a curb side ways and hit it with the rear passenger side wheel.

ever since the car has been sitting lop sided.

the driver side is lower and passenger side is higher.

you can tell that the alignment , toe and camber is off by a glance at the rear.

just wondering if there might be anything else that may be worse problem?

she was going about 25mph when she hit the curb.

She probably bent the rear control arm.
