Hi guys,

I recently had a big crash which bent my radiator and subframe pretty bad.

Took it in for repairs , radiator was straitened and they said they fixed the subframe as well.

Well, as you can see my left Exhaust Muffler is way to the left , which indicates they didnt fix shit.

Ive been bending the thing the whole day now trying to get the muffler to the correct position.

Muffler is not bent though .

Do any of you guys have any tips with bending subframes back to the original position ?

Hard to tell from the pics but the mufflers don’t look in alignment with the back wheel (in the 2nd pic). How far out were the mufflers from the subframe before they tried to straighten it I.e. they weren’t too far the other way were they?

I would suggest that you do have a bent pipe, muffler or hanger to cause the left muffler to be that far out. The photo seem to show that the rear tire will come in contact with it when the suspension is compressed. The sub frame seem to be straight in the photo.
