    Depends on the extent of the damage and exactly where it is.

    If its the cross member thats a little tweeked, you could replace that and it would be fine.

    From my experience, it's possible that the front crossmember(the part that holds the radius arms) is tweaked too. My CRX had similar damage and needed more than just replacing the crossmember and LCA....I know this because I tried. :(

    my subframe was bent from the same type of accident when i bought my car. you can get it fixed for cheap sometimes. just make sure their isnt more extensive damage. and if you get it repaired get it done by a reputable shop not just ppl using a light post to pull it out with chains. ask to see the machine and ask them to show you how it's done. so that it seems like they know what they're doing.
