Where are you located?
If you were here I could send you to one of two honest mechanics I know.
A body shop could do the repairs.  You might find a hard time finding
a shop to lay hands on a 94, though.
There just isn't enough profit in messing with older stuff for most
shops.  Plus, once you start you find that
a tie rod end or ball joint or something else is worn out, too, and it
can snowball.

There are two "you pull it" type yards here.  I would assess the
damage and head to a "you pull it" for parts.
The job probably isn't too complicated.  Be careful, though, as you
will probably need to compress the spring
to work on the strut.
If you do go with new parts, you should replace both struts.  One new
and one worn may not be altogether safe.
