Ok guys which is the best way to straighten a front kickup? Right front is bent up about 5 degrees right at the kickup bend. Do I cut the bars off (running from kickup to rear frame) and bend it back down and reweld, they are pushed back 1/2". Or do I cut a slice right at kickup from bottom up to top and leave bars on and bend it and reweld slit? I have done frame work before but am always looking for an better easier way. Horn is cut away now.

Don't cut anything! It bent as one, so bend it back as one. We did the same thing. I had it put on a frame machine and bent it back in place with a little extra bend at the end. It will flex back a little bit. I had them put a some extra bend in it. My driver like it. Said it handled a better. If it happens again, i'll do it again.
