Default Bent Club Car

Anyone e an idea how to fix this issue? The passenger side front cowl support is jacked up and I need to straighten it out... Any ideas? So far I have tried using ratchet straps from the rear frame to a tree and the same on the bent part up front, also heating the circular frame part in the front. No go... Any ideas?

You know to be very carefull with heat on aluminum. Do you have a come- a - long? It will pull a lot more than a ratchet strap. You can also break aluminum bending it pretty easy. I know that's not much help, just reminding you how difficult a job you have. Good luck.

Did not know heating aluminum was tricky. The issue I am having is when trying to pull front, it pulls down on the leaf spring so I am not really getting anywhere.

not real sure just what is bent, looks like the red arrows to me,

I would take a 2x4 , and bolt to the cowl support and extend to the left with the remaining portion as a lever. park with the front to something to prevent rolling forward and pull the end of the 2x4.

or extend to the right and lift the 2x4,..

Also not sure what is bent from the photo provided.

Is the drivers side "low" or is the passenger side high/back?

The passenger side is bent back and up towards seating area. I cannot find what is actually bent either. I might try the 2x4 trick later.
