My son hit the crub (passenger side) and the mechanic says that I need to replace the frame. Should I get one from the junk yard or can it be soldered?

I would take it to an autobody shop, most of them can repair bent frames depending on the damage. They will tell you whether or not they can do it.
I had a 94 Tempo that I repaired the frame 2 times ( from sliding into curbs in the winter ) that car is still on the road with no alignment issues.
Thats how we do it in Canada !! : )
Good Luck!

1. This vehicle is a unibody, meaning is has no separate frame or chassis. 2. Why would you want to separate it, if it weren't a uni? 3. Your problem is most likely a bent control arm, see an alignment shop to have it corrected.

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.

Wrecked 2004 suburban how do you measure the frame to see if it is bent , car was hit on passenger side bent frame horn to the right. set off the air bags.

Well you can measure from the lower front balljoint with a tape measure all the way back to the middle of the rear axle housing on the same side,then do that for the other side your measurements probabley won't be the exact same on both sides but should be within about a 1/4 of and inch.Then you can do the cross measure way by taking the tape measure and going from the left front lower balljoint to the right rear axle housing then do the same for the other side.This should also be within about 1/4 of an inch.

Right negative it adjustable? The toe was out of adjustment........when adjusted to specs the camber was still -2.3 degrees

Camber is the lean "off perpendicular" of the wheel. This error could be worn control arm bushings or something bent from a collision or pothole curb hit. Jack up the car from the lower control arm, not the frame. This will keep weight on the front suspension same as if it's on the ground. With the tire about 2 inches off the ground and the car wheels chocked safely, now you can check for wear. Do not get under the car !!!! Use about a 2 foot steel bar or pipe, placed under the wheel. Now lifting up see if there is loosness , clunking of the wheel or movement of the control arm bushings.

The frame is unitized to the body so I would replace the car since its 5 years old. Your talking big bucks to have this repaired. A Cheif EZ Liner is a frame machine that can be used a qualified tech making $75 an hour. Your car wouild be in the shop for more than 40 hours to repair. If the whole bottom frame diamensions is tweek very bad it can take more time than a week. Trade it in

I would get a second opinion but yes you can tweek a component a small amout but still take it out of adjustment range. You normally wouldn't replace a frame but would have it straightened by a professional body shop. It may be prudent to involve the insurance company

The sub frame is also known the engine cradle assembly, if it is damaged get another from a wrecting yard, without allot of special equip and tools you are wasting your time trying to repair the old frame, of course I don't know how badly it is damaged so this could be incorrect.
