You are right.
Only the lower control arm ball joint seems to have snapped, everything else looks fine(tie-rod,link rod,strut).
This could also be a case of misdiagnosis, as a bad LCA ball joint will make similar noise as that of a bad stabilizer bar link rod. But what makes the LCA bend that way ? I don't know.

He mentioned that the car was previously involved in an accident. That could be the reason.

Also possible that his mechanic warned him about it, but interchangeably used another term 'link rod' instead of 'ball joint'

You are spot on Doc. Just last Sunday, took my Swift zxi to the MSM at Jehangirpuri to get exactly the same part i.e. link rods changed. The GM was very upset at his team having missed the worn out bushes on the link rods when my car had gone to them around Holi.

While taking the team to task he reiterated the same point that you make in your post. Sudden failure of the link rod can & will lead to the K member (the sub frame in the picture, looks like alphabet K hence the name) failure (just as it has in this case) thereby damaging or destroying the suspension too.

I'm sure it was a 6 wheeler Truck that this Tata407 rear ended. I 'm sure cause cause the spare wheel of the other truck is lying in front. The spare of some larger trucks is made to stick out a little as an extra bumper for minor impacts.

A video showing a man adorning orange scarf, driving a Tata Safari bearing license plate UP 16BL 2333, which had Hindu Yuva Vahini plastered all over, has gone viral. In the video, you can see the man is checking the front bumper of his Safari, trying to fix it from the damage. The video then shows a motorcycle lying on the ground, the biker of this motorcycle is nowhere to be seen. In the meantime, the Safari driver has gotten back into the car, and drove off.

Soon the recorder of the video asks what happened. To this eye witnesses say that the driver of the said Safari, had hit a biker some 100 meters back, and had fled from the scene. In the aftermath, the biker got thrown off his bike, while the bike got stuck under the front right tyre. The Safari driver dragged the bike for over 100 meters from accident spot, while leaving the biker to die on the road.

The first day of the Bengali New Year, 15 April 2017. We were on our way to Jaipur for a day trip, accompanied by a friend and his family in a blue Innova. It was 52*C outside according to the thermometer on the dashboard, at about 2pm.

The Innova, ahead of us by a few minutes, blew a radiator hose and stopped at Bawal. We caught up with them and stopped behind, carried out some running repairs, and were about to be on our way. As I walked back to my car, I saw a Swift come out of the side road behind my car, and begin to head on to the highway on the wrong side.

A vehicle carrier was coming down the flyover, and the Swift misjudged the distance as it moved across the path of the trailer truck. The trailer swerved to its left as it hit the Swift on its right side, spinning it 360*, and then the trailer appeared to go out of control. For a second, I had my heart in my mouth, but then the driver recovered control, brushed past a motorcycle, and came to a stop alongside our cars.

The bumper on the road indicates a spot a little closer than where the trailer hit the Swift. Our vehicles are parked behind the camera, on the dirt shoulder to the left of the white unbroken line.

That's how much the trailer missed us by, before he managed to stop.

The right corner of the truck's bumper took the impact.

The condition of the Swift...

God had been kind to all of us that day. No one died or suffered major physical injuries.

That explains why the Jag has heavy roof damage without any signs of overturning (twisted axles). Glad to see the passenger cell is intact

Hope the Bike Rider is safe and hope another Camera has recorded the accident.

An accident which happened on the busy Baner road today afternoon. Article in Marathi but video at the end of the article. May God give the strength to the families of those young kids who perished for no fault of their own.

Oh man, that's too sad!
I fail to understand why would the driver climb on the divider? The pedestrians were not in a hurry, nor did they try to confuse the driver by going back and forth or in any other way.

May the souls RIP!

The article says that the car was being driven by a lady driver,the wife of a builder, who lost control of the vehicle upon reaching that point. I suspect it might be a case of DUI or being distracted by the phone , or both. She has not been yet arrested as she was injured in the accident too.

Saw this accident yesterday afternoon at around 2:45PM. It was near the Dmart/Decathon flyover in Bommasandra, Bangalore. Must have been a case of either the swift guy not being careful or the brake lights of the bus not working
The MS RSA person was standing beside the car. So I assume, it must have happened an hour or so earlier. The steering column and everything behind it looked intact. Hope the Driver is ok

Driver of the Swift will be OK if he/she was wearing a seat belt.

I have noticed that buses coming from Hosur into Bangalore, once past the Attibele toll booth, will stop anywhere - and I mean anywhere - to let passengers get off. So this accident was probably caused by 3 factors:
1. Bus stopped randomly
2. Bus brake light not working (I am usually very surprised if they do work)
3. Inattentive driver of Swift
