Icon5 Serious Question

yea i said i wont mod anymore but i cant its like a drug....damnit..lol anyways this isnt a mod its a appearance thing...the frame rail on the driverside is down an inch from the front to the rear and the passengerside is up an inch from the driverside all the way down.. so my question is should i use inch body lift blocks and bolts and bring the driverside up an inch? i dont have the money to have the frame straightened and iam not going to..

Sorry, but what kind of bend? any pics or something like MS pain to give an idea of wha tyour working with? because if you put a body block on one side all the mounting positions would stress fromt he odd angle wouldnt it?

Than again it sounds liek it already IS at an odd angle so i dont know.

adding a body lift would be like wearing corrective lenses. It will temporarily fix the problem but it will make it worse over time. deal with it, or fix it right

Frame swap would be easiest. Adding blocks to one side will lead to problem after problem and by the time you get it fixed, if ever, you've put way more money, effort, and trouble into it than it would have if you just get a new frame. Just my 2cents..
