2007 335i right front knee assembly

I'm looking for a right knee assembly for my 335i. where can I find these parts if they are sold as a whole or if they are part by part? Thanks!

OK. I will be the first to ask. What is a "knee assembly?"

OK. I would call that the steering knuckle. BMW does to. Looks like it is about $150 from the dealer at getbmwparts.com. http://www.trademotion.com/parts/200...ponent=Knuckle

I thought the knee assembly included the following:

Strut
Hub and bearing assembly
lower and lower control arms

ok so I looked at it yesterday and looks like the front right lower control arm is bent pretty good. so I am going to change just the lower contol arm because the hit wasn't very hard looks like a curb rash but I will be doing this today and will get an alignment.

Tie rod, upper control arm, and strut are not damaged. (Tie rod looks to have a normal elbow at the outter part)
