Need help with rear right upper control arm

So I bought this c300 notceditneeded an alignment, put it up to get it aligned and noticed the rear right was -2 camber. After further examining I saw the rear upper forward control arm was bent bringing in the camber. I bought a new one tried installing it and it seems to not match the hols of where it should go. Its about a half inch longer. I then realized its probably because the bent one has messed up the camber so much that the wheel hub is now at a permanent camber is there any way to bring the hub out a little bit so that the new control arm will fit? The first pic is the bent control arm and the new one the second is how much longer it sits when installed and the third is the other end of it when it is installed. Please help!!!

Is the part number the same on both? It looks so far out that it must be a different part. How could you bend that piece so much? They look really beefy.

It's not an OEM part it's a rein control arm but it's a good part and the right one. And no the previous owner must have bottomed out hard and bent it they're fairly flimsy feeling

Yeah but nothing else looks bent and to that extent you would notice something else bent just by looking. Plus I know the camera is off -2 degrees and I'm confident that if I get the camber back in line it'll pull that hole out to the spot I need it at. If anyone has experience installing camber bolts please help, as their is not a lot on them for the 204.
