Totaled 1999 2500 diesel... need help!
 
Ok so my son had an accident with my truck. He was hit on the drivers side and both doors (quad cab) need some work along with some minor work on the front quarter and bed. Doors close fine just dented up. Front needs a new upper control arm and ball joint. So I'm trying to get everything fixed a cheaply as possible. I'm not sure how much the body work will cost but have some body shop buddies that can help me out so I think that can be done fairly resonably. Can also fix the front myself but wondering where I can get some cheap parts. I've found some reasonably priced control arms but not sure about the brands (Dorman, Mevotech, etc..). For instance at Oreilly's the upper control arm is $197 but I think comes in pairs... but I've found single ones (Mevotech) for around $100.

So any advice on getting this fixed on the cheap and where to get some parts would be greatly appreciated!!

Oh after the buyback I should have about $5700 for the fix. I'd like to do it for $3000 or less if possible.

Thanks!

Sorry guess I didn't mention it is RWD. It was in fantastic condition for the age. Used to be owned by a retired couple that were snow birds and pulled a fifth wheel down to Arizona from Nebraska. It was kept up very well which is why I want to keep it and that the motor is worth more than the buy back price.
