    I dont know why all I have are white trucks???????? every one asks that

    nothing looks bent under there. with the steering wheel straight the wheels are turned to the right like in the pics. If the frame go pushed back would it make the doors not line up??
    I called a frame shop to day 65$ an hour min 2 hours to get it on the rack and 2 to 5 hours of straighing.

    take two 90 degree roofers squares put at opposite corners of frame measure it in this manor X if one is longer than other you have bent frame. If not then it is something else might be axle is bent sounds dumb but could be a hanger problem. Hope this helsp some. G.L.
