Frame Straightening...

I was wondering if anyone knows a reputable shop that will check if my AE86 frame is still in factory spec?
Also if my AE86 frame is not in factory spec anyone know a place that will pull my frace back to factory spec?
Thanks...

I believe your car basically has to be put onto the "rack" to check how straight it is. And from there, you can pull it if needed. I asked 1 place and they quoted $375 just to get the car on there and check.

caroliner - frame straightening set up a real bitch....takes mad time but actual pullin can be done in the matter of minutes

i've straightened a few cars and all i can say is make sure the shop that does it has some one certified to do it cause if they over pull you're scewed - you cant just pull it back

Yeah, plus its REALLY hard to get it 100% straight. I got a motto myself. if the car has frame damage, I'd think twice before spending money on it, rahter I'd just get a new car. Because if there is frame damage, even after straightening, it'll be more flexy.

There is a place around the heritage Rd area that does a lot of the repair work for the local dealerships. They have a straightening rack there. I forget the name of the place but I'll see if I can find it. That's where they gave me a rough price quote and actually, I was thinking the same thing; rebuilding the AE86 ...
