I straightined my 5.0 front end out with crow bars and a jack under the bumper?

I used two jacks and a 2x6 to keep the pressure level and the my dad had to stand on top of the car.. I would get it about an inch off the ground and he would jump a little and we did that till it was straight.

Lol. Sorry but i had a mental picture. So, when u say he stood on top off ur car , surely not the roof or hood, that would leave a mark. Im thinking as long the weight is aft of the bumper. I have my fenders off so mayb a couple people on each fender rail. Hey sounds hillbilly, but iam from west virginia, i can relate

Lol middle of
Nebraska we do things like that all the time.. Nah the hood was off and stood there someware.. If you choose to do it that way keep your weight level.. Aka 2x6 .. And don't lift the car any farther the. You want to bumper to go up.. Because once it gives it goes and it's a lot easyer to go up the bring it down.. Unless you have another can that is lol.
