Default Re: G14 front frame bent

In that instance, most likely the main frame tube has been bent. Take off the front body/dash/floor mat and wiring. Take it to a frame straightening shop for an estimate. They will need to heat and stretch it back into place. At that point you could weld some steel strengthening supports so it doesn't happen again if so desired.

I hook one end of cart to giant I beam supporting a big roof. I hook the other end to the forklift. I let the inertia of the forklift do the work for me. There are many reasons why this is a bad idea (so you don't need to list them for me), but it has worked for me.

Iíve used big trees and a truck to get race cars back on the track. Not saying itís the best method but it works in a pinch.
