just a little love

I just bought a 1994 2.3 L. I love this thing so much. But it is know to me and all my friends as the ugly beast. It is perfect and strong, but the whole front end is messed up. The guy before who owned it, ramed it into a trailer hitch. So the whole front end.won't line up. The left side is higher then the right. It makes it so the hood wont align and the head lights wont either. Any suggestions on what to do? I think I just need to replace the steel bumper but, if anyone else has any ideas let me know. I can't upload a photo now but I will try when I get home.

Re: just a little love

its possible that you have a bent frame, and would need to dump lots and lots of money into it to get it straightened back out.
your best bet might be to find one that has a junk motor, but a good body and swap everything out.
to fix yours (if it is bent) would be thousands
to get a shell, would be a couple hundred

Re: just a little love

When I got it checked out, the frame isn't bent. What supports the bumper? Like what part of the car is behind that?

Re: just a little love

the radiator support? is that what your talking about? those are fairly inexpensive but would def have to go to a body shop to have it installed unless your handy with a welder.
post up some pics of it, and im sure you will get loads more help on what direction to go

he is talking about the ACTUAL bumper, not the bumper cover (what most people call the front bumper)

it is possible that it is bent, my car was like that too, no frame damage, but the everything is off alignment, took of my bumper cover and sure enough the metal bumper was all jacked up.
