Common sense tells me to make sure the car is straight before I add weld-on subframe connectors. I'm hoping someone can tell me it doesn't matter!
I have a wizard welder on contract, the car is in pieces, and I want weld-on connectors. But an alignment problem also makes me fear the frame is not totally straight, so I had future plans to visit what you guys call "the rack". But by the time the car reaches that stage, the welder will be working in Dubai!
Will "the rack" be able to do its work with a subframe connector welded in place?
