So this i let my buddy borrow my truck and some dumass pulled out in front of him. What do you guys think? Nobody was injured although I did want to punch the girl who obviously cant drive.

Glad no body was hurt badly. That is most important. And I agree with Hank I don;t know who I feel worse for you for having a busted truck, or your friend for being behind the wheel (even though it wasn;t his fault)

Good luck getting everything settled. I T-boned a F150 3 months ago when the highschooler ran a stop sign in front of me, still fighting over pennies.

Im not mad at him at all, it was definitely not his fault. As soon as he hit the car it sheered off the shaft that goes into the steering box so he could not steer at all. Thats why he ended up in the bushes. The frame is bent pretty good at that drop bracket i hope they just total it out to be honest. We'll shall see.

thanks,

Also side note for you guys, the airbags did not deploy at all. I thought that was kinda weird since it was a pretty good collision, he hit her at like 50mph. It spun that Galant all the way around. Then he went crashing into the woods, but no airbag :dunno:

Its because it was a corner impact. The airbags only go off in a mostly frontal impact. That way if your truck spins and you get thrown to the side the airbag won't smack you into the the door.

That suck's to see, pulling the frame on these trucks are a ***** because you have to use alot of chains to tie it down with. Make sure you get a print out of the before and after specs on the frame rack.

I wish I had done that, but it seems straight from inspection and how it drives. After they pulled the frame all the sheet metal lined back up perfectly. This was the second time the frame was bent, first time was when I bought it totaled and pulled the frame myself, so I'm sure its better now.
