How do i go about getting my frame straightened? It is tweaked at the front end. The two rails are kinda bowing outwards at the bottom of the frame rail kinda like this / \. I was told this by the shop i took my truck too. Has anyone ever had this happen? What is the best way to streghten a frame? Should i make cross members across the frame or what? I plan on putting coilovers up front within a month or two so i need to get it straightened as soona s possible. When i put my coilvers in i also plan on building an engine cage. Will the combination of cross member and an engine cage be enough to keep the frame from becoming tweaked again? Does anyone have any clue on how much or who can staighten a frame in the temecula area as far southe as northen san deigo county and north as riverside?

Thanks for the help,
Gregg

Chevy frames are known for twisting, PM dezdude he has had his truck done in Temecula. An engine cage will take car of that problem also a better crossmember under the motor and transmission also will help keep the frame from rolling in.

I don't mean to sound redundant, but I would also like to recommend Dale at Daves' F&A, great work, and just as importantly, he's easy to deal with and nice guy.

A suburban might not be as good as a truck, but it comes damn close with 8 people in it
