Inverted U, spreader bar, scrap steel, porta power..... I like what you are putting down. Sounds like you are volunteering? Only joking. We couldn't pay you enough to put up with the dynamics of the four know-it-alls on this team telling you what and how to do it.

Yes we do and it very well could. What is the model number so I could look up the specs (gathering range and such). Going from memory, the ID between the strut towers where those jaws would land is probably 29-ish" now and we need another 2.25". Thank you.


The second estimate came in from the "budget" shop this morning. $2,500. No body work. Just pulling out the strut tower and confirming the rest is square.


Thanks guys for the ideas. If I come calling around mid July, please answer the phone.

Goose will point out they are leveraging possible deporation to get him to spill the beans. Secretly he's been buying/selling so many parts because they all have tracking devices. The entire community is now enabled.
