bent rad support ??

hey guys I just bought a new Lude, I was replacing the rotten radiator, then I realize my lower rad support is BENT, probably the car was involve in a small colision, can you guys help me out and tell me what is the dimension between the lower rad support, and the cross member, so I can work it out to OEM. I would really appreciate, thank you,

there is a picture to show the dimension I need to know

Good move!

Both sides?

I guess I'm asking that because the right side looks ok in the pic.

I'll measure my sons 93 later when he's home if nobody else has chimed in before that.


Edit:


2" from the center of the hole the radiator pad goes in to the cross member. Both sides.

Nice to be nice to a nice car.

I like fixing a multitude of items when you have to disassemble portions of the car like you mentioned. At least you know that part of the car should be trouble free for a while.
