Default Front Lower Control Arms

Ok I am really confusing myself searching about the control arms.
I have a 98 honda civic lx. I bought a control arm/camber kits off of ebay. I guess it came with a REAR lower control arm, front upper control arm and rear camber. To my understanding the upper control arm is the front camber.
Ok now for the real problem. I hit a curb with my front passenger wheel and found out that I bent the front lower control arm along with the hub. I was trying to find an aftermarket front lower control arm but I couldn't find any. Should I just stick with the stock? otherwise where could i find aftermarket ones?
thanks

Just go with stock replacements. Only aftermarket ones I have seen are from a company called hardrace I think. Pretty much stock arms with harder rubber bushings in them.

The only true aftermarket front LCA is by Omni. But they are very expensive and really not worth it. Hardrace sells stock arms with their hard rubber bushings already pressed in, which is nice. So either go with Hardrace or stick with a stock replacement arm.

If camber kit you bought is no name and you plan on installing it, be warned that they will not last long and are potentially dangerous.
