Re: frame alignment

i have been in a minor accident but nothing but body damage which caused absolutely 0 damage to the frame (it was like this before that happened, thats how i know, it seems it must have been like this even before i bought it) But a local dealer(not the dealer i bought it at) has suspected possible frame damage since my alignment refuses to stay for longer then a day then it goes far far out. Whats that sound like to you ? could that be possible frame damage ?

Re: frame alignment

when i replaced my bushings on the swaybar about a 2months ago i noticed no play in any of the suspension components. What the dealer did tell me is when they turned the shaft to get the wheels and steering perfect they'd get it extremely close to being straight, then once they turned it that little bit, it jumped out to the other side by just a bit.They were never able to get it 100% perfect due to it jumping out from 1 side to another attempting to get it straight.

dude if the frame has to be pulled, it might throw some of the body gaps out of wack, so expect a pretty big bill.

Re: frame alignment

It could also be a bent suspension/steering piece.

Re: frame alignment

some cars wear bad, if it doesnt need aligning make them not have you pay, get that in writing.
