suspensio/frame question

Recommended Posts

I have had trouble getting my car right. It tends to pull a little to the right and the convertible top doesn't seem to come out straight. I took it to the dealer who said that the frame looked bent to him, but they don't do body work. I took it then to a body shop they said that the frame measures out correct but that the suspension and engine cradle are aluminum and they have sagged over time. However, they said that repairing the suspension/emngine cradel would be best done if replaced and that would cost far too much. Does any of this make sense to you all? Any suggestions? I am at a loss. The biggest concern I have is 1. that the convertible top won't open and close smoothly and the allignment can't be brought into spec.

Thanks for your reply.

Where do I find one of those? The dealer wouldn't touch it since it was body work, and said to just take it to any body shop. "Any body shop can straighten frames." THe dealer wouldn't give me any suggestions. I live in Pittsburgh PA, and took it to the best one where I live. I have been wrestling with this issue for over a year now and no one can put their finger on what's wrong, and they try to shoo me out of their shop. I have never had such a hard time giving business to someone before. It is frustrating because I have spent a lot of time taking off from work dropping the car off, talking it to mechanics and the result is always the same. I am told the problem is the one thing that the shop I am standing in doesn't work on.

Oh ya and one additional comment. I have had the thing alligned 3 or 4 times. No one can get it into "spec." My local mechanic probably did the best job. However, one of the times I took it to the special guy that was proported to do all the high end sports cars in town (ferraris, Lambos, porsche, etc.). I paid good money for his help, and he still couldn't get it into spec. He was the one who said that the frame was bent. I didn't care that much because it drives pretty straight. It pulls a touch to the right, but everyone reminds me that with the hump back roads a lot of the right pull around here is the road not the car. Really the most annoying thing has been the convertible top. I took it to the dealer, he said he can't do anything. The problem is that there are no top adjustments if it isn't lining up it is the frame. Now the frame guy says the frame is fine and it is the suspension and engine cradle. If so, would that throw off the top. I am at a loss.
