So, one of my front forks got crunched in a recent crash.

It's the right-side outer tube.

Am I better trying to replace just the outer tube and rebuild the fork (sounds more than my ability), or, should I just get a whole in-one fork? $400 vs $1200 on bike bandit + labor.

Also, any issues replacing one fork only? Given the bike is an '08, with 30Kish miles on it, would the fork have worn enough to leave it unbalanced somehow?

Given it leaked oil over the brakes on that one side, I'll replace the pads too on that side, and I already have a thread on here about replacing (or preferably not) the front fender.

After 10 years use and assorted environmental abuse - A refurbishing would be in order anyway. Plus (if you have not already) - Speak to @Joesmoe about the cartridge emulator upgrade on "T" forks.
