    to get it back into shape really isnt that hard if you have patience, i have a cj5 that i built up, i plated the frame with 1/4" plate, swapped out old axles for larger ones, moved them both from there original location, extended the frame, ect. i found that if i got the truck frame perfectly level, removed the tires from the rims, bolt them up, on the frt, make sure they are 90 degrees from the axle tube. now you have to locate where to place the axles, spring hangers ect. before you do any finish measurements, load up the vehicle with some weight to compress the springs as in normal use. a string or straight edge will get them in line, thats why the bare rims, and check the cross deminsions. if you take your time, the truck should go down the road nice and straight with normal tire wear. its a back yard method but it works, good luck

    Yeah I figured as much. That's why I didn't even bother clicking on the link he provided. His comments read like some of the owners manuals for the cheap Chinese tools I have read. It loses something in translation from Chinese to English. I've always preferred doing mechanic work barehanded anyway, that way I have a better feel for the fasteners and tools. About the only work I do wearing gloves is welding or working with wire rope(steel cable).
