The service manual?
A body shop with a frame machine?

I don't have an answer, but if you find the information I'd like to have it also. I have a '72 C20 frame out back and would like to be able to check it out.


Its true, I really don't do anything but browse the Internet looking for trouble...

the assembly manual is what you want for detail, but if you want to see if things are the right shape, just measure diagonals everywhere, like front left tip to rear right tip compared to front right tip to rear left tip ... do end to end, front to first crossmember, to second, to third, then back to first, etc

if one diagonal measurement is much off it's counterpart, it's wracked, if they all match up well, you're ok

i know the front frame horns are bent, as i can see the front bumper does not line up , and want to get it centered again, but dont think its bent back as far as the front crossmember,,
