LMS... how bad was your frame? What areas were patched?

Brillo,

The frame wasn't bad as it looked like they caught it early at the dealership.
Looks like a couple of 2-3" patched on the vertical sides close to Cat / Exhaust area. Same problem with passenger side, side panel of bumper. The heat in winter as you know causes havoc with metal and the salt we use in these parts. Appears they undercoated the whole vehicle so that is why the body is in such good shape. I did notice a flaw in Toyota's design behind the front tires there is an opening at the rocker panel point And we wonder why rust happens there, lol The running boards is the saving grace on these units I think.

I just tried to loosen the emergency brakes and opened the boots and you should have seen the salt granules coming out of those boots. Needless to say those need to be replaced. Had the mechanic remove and replace new 99 tall springs and as Tim showed in his video it lifted the rear end by 1-1/2" so she is rolling down the road without the rear sag!
