    Tweaked the A frame on my 8'2" Local guy says he can swap a used one in that he had straightened in a press, anyone straighten one? I'm a bit worried it'll just bend easier.

    I would just replace it with a new one if youre getting that deep.

    Where is it bent? Straighten it after, plate it in and save it for a spare

    He says he has 3 straightened a frames in his shop that he swaps out all the time. I get the used frame installed for $200 bucks flat, his labor included.

    That's what I was thinking, I think an A frame is 450-500 at the dealer here, that I'd still have to do the work :mechanic:

    It's too cold for that :)
