'94 suzuki sidekick offroader

hello my dad and i have a '94 suzuki sidekick 4x4. So far we have added a 2-inch body lift and 2-inch suspension lift. We had a problem when we got it about an oil leak, we thought it was the crank case seal when we took it to a mechanic when the head gasket blew e kew it probably did because it as lousing antifreeze. he said that the bolts on the head were barly finger tight but he replaced all the seals. We replaced the radiator and it was still lousing antifreeze so we thought that the head was warped and its been in the shop for about 6 weeks with no improvments.

I have a 95 Sidekick 1.6 16Valve in my Samurai. Theres not anything you can do to strengthen the head. Take head to a machine shop and have the head milled down so it will be a flat surface to the block. Normaly the blocks don't go bad. For more info on your suzuki go to Zukikrawlers most the time you can fined out anything you want to know about a suzuki there.

By this you mean make it flat not warped? It should only take a few days depending on how busy they are.
