Q: Can you fix a bent frame? If so, how?

asked by on November 01, 2016

My frame on my truck is bent. Is there a way to fix it?

Depending on the severity of the damage to the frame, this may or may not be able to be fixed. There are shops that have frame machines that are able to correct small damage to frames, depending on the make and model of truck you are talking about. I would recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform a 75 point safety inspection, which will determine how safe your vehicle is to drive and give you and your passengers peace of mind while on the road.
