[Vwdiesel] Unibody frame / front wheel alignment

Sometime in the history of my 1981 PU truck, a shop lifted the truck at an
incorrect point.  This action pushed the floor pan up about one inch on the
drivers side and pt a major dent in the rocker panel and unibody "frame".
Since I have owned this truck, I have been unable to get the front end in
proper alignment.  I have tried two different shops and they tell me that
the adjustment is maxed out.
Could the bend in the frame be responsible?  Would hammering out the dent
cause it to weaken even more?
