    Hey guys. Any opinions on frame straightening? I saw a frame where one of the front horns (past the front crossmember) is bent from an accident. Once the frame is straightened, does it severely weaken the frame? Thanks for the info as always!

    I would rather go buy a striaght frame then have one straightened. I know where there is an 84 frame sitting that you could pick up for about $250 in Western PA.
