Bent steering arm

Slid into a curb in my wife's 2007 RIO5 related to the sorry road conditions up here in Northern Idaho(and my driving style if you ask my wife). Only damage is to the steering. After putting the car up on jack stands I noticed the steering arm is bent under the rubber boot on the drivers side. Anyone know if that part can be replaced or if that entire assembly has to be replaced. Also Anyone know which other years and models use the same assembly.

Great site
