I agree, it really depends on how bad it's bent to figure out if it's salvageable...is that a word? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

the driver side frame seems to be higher. it also is tweaked inward a few degrees, (its not straight up and down in comparison with the ground). the passenger side seems fine.

oh and the front axle looks to be moved over about a half inch in comparison to the body. the frond driver shackle is angled inwards, they are ord's too.

You sure your springs aren't just whacked?

You might measure body-vs-frame, as opposed to ground-vs-frame ... if one of the spring leaves is cracked or if one side is flatter than the other it'll throw things off.

I just finished a frame swap on my blazer and the frame that was on my blazer had already been through a fram machine it was that bad. it had bent the front shackels really bad and the rear springs wherr twisted. I think i got my frame for 225 and got a new gas tank a skid plate dual shocks and a bunch of other goodies.
