    if its the power steering bracket, it could be replaced. if the frame itself. you will have to go and see if it can be fixed.

My 2004 Ford Focus has a crack in the frame about 1 foot long under the driver's seat. I seen it when it was up on the lift. It was most likely caused by a big ice chunk that broke off a truck a

Generally speaking you need some kind of engineers certificate to confirm the repair does not affect the safety of the car so the first mechanic is correct. It should be repairable probably worth seeing an engineers workshop or car body repairer most mechanics would run from this one too hard for them.

1987 toyota pickup brake lines need replaced

Best of luck with that. You need a lot of PB or WD40

But honestly, brakes may just be the first of your problems.
Gas lines, mounts, exhaust and of course the frame are all next
I literally had a truck frame break in half
Sometimes its just time, IMHO

I have a 1996 F-150 XLT with the 300-6 and a 5spd. It has approximately 184k on it and I recently installed a 6inch rough country suspension lift with shocks and extended brake lines included. I have 37 x...

I suppose that the required quality of the frame repair depends partly on how much you plan to stress the frame before you have the opportunity to do a complete repair. I suggest you take it easy on the truck (don't go wheeling) until the frame is fully repaired and reinforced.

Driving my 1993 jeep gran cherokee when i los my steering...

any good repair shop can fix your problem, you may have mounting bolts that sheared off, or worst case, you may have a broken frame rail, I doubt the frame is cracked or broken. The cost of this repair will depend upon what all is damaged, if it is just he bolts, they are cheap, if the gearbox itself is damaged it costs about 150 dollars, then you will have shop time (labor) which i have no idea what shop time is in your area, but it will be "x" dollars per hour, and I would say at least 3 hours to repair. I hope this is helpful to you.

Truck will not turn over

Could've popped the starter relay. Sounds like the electronics in the distributor are bad. They do have a small problem with them.

1993 ford f-150 shifter busted

there are several possible ways this can happen, 1 on the transmission there is a cable that comes from the column, check to see that it is attached to the shift selector . This is located under your brake foot under the truck.
Another, on the column, towards the back of it under the dash, this same cable has a plastic cup that snaps on to a metal ball , it might have broke or just popped off.

They cost around $113.

Tie Rod Ends for Ford Ranger

To be honest, I have no experience with the changes necessary when lifting a truck's suspension. All of my work on trucks has been limited to routine maintenance and repairs. With a 5.5" lift and the associated changes in suspension geometry, I wouldn't know where to start in telling you what you'd need. I don't want to steer you wrong, so I'm going to suggest you post this in the general vehicle question area for another vehicle expert to pick up on - I'm sure someone on here can tell you what you need from their own past experience.

Sorry if it's disappointed you, but I'd rather defer to someone else than tell you something that may not be correct.
