Need help with bent lower control arm bracket

Long story short I bent the left front lower control arm bracket pretty bad. Gonna need a new one most likely. Probably a control arm as well. Anyone else had this problem? What did you do to fix it? I found a kit online that comes with two. I'll include the link. Anyone used this kit? Don't want anything expensive because the jeep will be up for sale as soon as it's fixed. I can get pictures when I get off work.

I put those on almost two years ago. They have great instructions. Cheap as in money wise upgrade but they are well worth the price.

It shows two different part #'s. One for a 2.5 inch axle tube and one for a 3 inch tube. Which one do I go with? It's an 09 wrangler unlimited x.

note 3 says.

3.0" (retube or outter shell kit) axle tube diameter kits

So if you haven't put an outer shell on your axle then you need the 2.5 inch.

Might have to pick one of them up. Don't know if it will help on the left side though. It's pretty beat up.
