    I'm in the process of straightening the frame on my '72 blazer after an accident. Does anyone have good pics of the front frame crossmember? Does anyone make new ones?

    The very front crssmember. The accident only damaged the frame from the shock mount forward.

    If thats the case, then it took out both your crossmembers.

    The engine crossmember is intact and not bent.
    The front crossmember is shaped in a V to begin with... I just need help judging how V-shaped it should be.

    the way to fix that would be to know the distance that the frame rails are supposed to be spearated by, the V wil be as big or small as it needs to be when the rails are separated by correct original distance, need ot get that distance from someone with same truck as you,

    i think i explained correctly,
