    Sounds totalled to me. Is the suspension fucked up, or is the sheet metal where the suspension connects to bent up?

    If its the latter, be prepared to go to multiple body shops for "repairs" that never really fix it, alignment shops that align it, but the next day its off again..

    Live the nightmare until you sell it or scrap it.

    My advise would be to save up a few bucks, find a rolling chassis / shell and swap all of your parts over.

    well its not as bad as i thought. we checked it out today and found that the rear driver tire had play where the is a rubber bushing where the hole back tire connects to the frame and the passenger side was not like this. autozone has the rubber bushing for 32 upfront order. the steering wheel is off tho but thats an easy fix it just sliped on the rack and pinion*(spelling) under the gas cap where the dent was...we got that to come back out but that wont ever be perfect but nuthing major was dun to the frame rails and all that other shit. the fender was f'd up but i had the replacement for it already same with passenger side fender so its alright for now. if the bushing doesnt work out then ill get the hole arm assembly off ebay or wherever. thanks
