Do any of you remember the story about the corvette falling off of the lift in California??? Well I have unfortunately had the same "accident" with my 2 month old 1500HD. Dealer wants to repair and be done with it. Any thoughts/feedback. They want to hammer the frame where it hit an arm of the lift.

First, I am gonna assume that it hit behind the front tire. When they get done with the "hammer", take a tape measure and measure from the bottom of the frame to the concrete on both sides. No matter what they say, as long as the tire pressure is within 1 lb on all 4 tires, the measurement should always be within 1/16". Next, measure from the center of the upper a arm on the right, to the bottom mount of the rear left shock tower. then do the same starting on the left. The difference here can determine whether or not your truck will run 'sideways" down the road. 1" off will be noticeable. Finally, remember, if you bend steel, it becomes weaker. Good luck, hope this helps.
