one of my mechanics has experience unbending these -
as it worked well in his rally car. This is one
option, although not my first choice. Even if I
eventually get a replacement I'd be tempted to have
this guy try the repair as it seems ashame to discard
a urq part. I have to see where mine is bent - the
mechanic indicated they bend in 2 places. I have
nasty positive camber on that side for sure.
Heat is used - of course I wonder about weakining of
the piece although my mechanics says he repeatedly
checks his rally car and the part has never given up a
milimeter to stress.
I occationlly hearing of folks thinking about
converting to the front end components from the 1988 -
1991 Audi 80's and 90's. If that's a good option I'd
do that but I don't know if anyone pulled it off.
