the spring hanger and springs arent too big of a deal, might just be the bolts that hold the hanger on. from the sounds of it you bent the spring too. thats gona be kinda spendy. you'll have to contact the manufacturer and see if they will sent you a new one. as for the frame- you may have to chop out and replace the bent portion. these frames are fairly serious. do you have any pictures yet?

if i read your posting right, it sounds like the frame where the hanger bolts to is bent?

Yeah frame problems are serious and hard to fix, even if someone can fix it odds are you will never be able to keep it aligned. you probably dont wanna hear this but i would scrap it or pawn it off on a dealer.

First you have to find a shop that is willing to straighten it that much.

Back when I was certified to straighten frames. If it was more then 1/2 inch out it was not getting straightened. When pulling on a frame that much for that far of a distance. The metal gets hot and weakens. Making it that much easier to bend it again.

I would look for either another frame rail or new truck that you can put your lift on.

Oh btw there is a reason why you should not text and drive at the same time.
