Default Re: Frame HELP

I can give you the frame measurements and specs , too bad none of you know how to read or measure frame specs but it might be of help , the hint is in the length of the measurement points .

Its pretty simple , if 2 points are to short that means the frame is too low , too long too high , but then again you also have find square . I wish I was there to help you , it would only take me a few minutes to figure out whats out ..

Send me a message if you still need it . Ill help you out the best I can .

I had one that was bent where the rear cab mount is riveted to the frame. I just put shims under the cab mount to make it sit level, it wasn't perfect but a lot better than it was when I started.

Default Re: Frame HELP

One of the best ways to straighten a frame on the ground is to tie down the frame at appropriate spots and just jack it out . At my shop I have 4 different frame benches and machines one of them is called a P4 system thats all on the ground clamps and all , the post is portable , but with that system and only that system I have to use a jack to raise or lower the frame ( Its the easiest way ) . Mind you I do have hydrolic pumps but I find the jack quicker sometimes . Now all ya need to do is find a place to tie the frame down with . And a good Collision repairman don't use shim's . Good luck !

Are you sure the frames actually tweaked? Or did you toast your body mount bushings/bolts? And $250 sounds about right for a frame straightening job...I work at a shop that has one and it would prob be around $300 there
