I bought a 1980 CJ 5. Turns out, the frame is bent. Looks like someone bought a wreck and installed a fiberglass body without straightening the frame. I think at the very least that I'm dealing with a 1 inch diamond on the drives side. Right now, I've stripped it to the bare chassis and strung a datum line down the middle. I can't detect any bananna bends and there are no kinks. The problem is that the rear springs splay outward so far that they won't connect with the frame rail now that I've installed new shackles. The old shackles were bent badly. My frame shop buddies tell me that they want spec's. from a KLM manual before they start trying to bend the frame back into shape. So far we can't find those spec's. There are other spec's around for the CJ frames, but they aren't detailed enough. Can anyone help with the KLM spec's? I'm burning daylight and want to get this thing back in one piece.
Any help much appreciated.
