Default 2000 F150: Built Tough... Not Tough Enough

I drive my truck on a lot of levee's and other places I shouldn't go off of pavement, but a couple weeks ago I hit a hole in the "road", and hit it so hard it bent some stuff in my suspension. The bend causes my truck to sit with the passenger front wheel cambered out... I'm pretty good at following instructions, and I'd like to fix this myself. Problem is, I don't know the name of the parts that're broken, or even where to buy them.

So here's some pictures of what I got goin on... any help on naming the broken parts?

Here's a picture of the camber:



Suspension I need to fix:





OK. So here's what I know for a fact is broken, I've circled it in RED. Not sure what it is or how to fix it... I just know it's bent pretty bad. What i've put a question mark in YELLOW in front of... is that something that *could* be broken with the type of accident I had... should I replace it anyways? What is it?





In GREEN I've shown what I think could also be bent, but I don't know for sure...



The only reason I think what's highlighted in GREEN might be bent, is because this bracket here is severely damaged. I've circled the bracket I speak of in BLUE.


I greatly appreciate any help anybody can give me... I'm hugely a DIY person, it'd probably kill me inside to take my truck to a mechanic.

I'm probably willing to spend about $200-300 on tools to do the job excluding parts... In case I need some crazy special tool or something, which more than likely I'll need.

I just need to know what I need to buy, and I can figure the rest out with youtube and friends haha

I only see that you will need a pickle fork, 10 bucks. I do not know if your mounting bracket for the "sway bar" , is welded or bolted on. this is a fairly easy fix. you may need to buy the whole lower control arm just for the bushing.
