As my name says lol 1989 Ranger S 2.3l 4cyl. I was hit by a drunk driver a few years back at 60mph while I was slowing to make a turn. My bed is toast because she was in a lifted F-350 and basically broke her front axle on my rear bumper which caused it to wrap up slightly over my tailgate. A few days ago I was able to remove the ruined bed from the frame and noticed that the passenger side rear is sitting about 1 1/2 to 2 inches higher than the other side. I haven't noticed any noise from misaligned tires and the shock mounts don't seem to be off from my knowledge. I wonder what I should expect to pay for frame repairs and if it would be possible to repair myself. I'll post so recent pictures that I took just a bit ago. I'm hoping to keep the cost down on returning it to my primary car so any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
