    You probably need to put the car up in the air and look for any obvious damage. If nothing jumps out at you, take some measurements and compare left to right to see if you can narrow it down to a specific component.

    Is it the stock K-member? You're gonna need a torch to heat that thing up to bend it. Otherwise you'll just ruin a perfectly good sledge. Also, there isn't much room for error in that area of the K-member. If you don't get it lined up damn near perfect, you'll screw up your suspension geometry and get a bit of binding. You're better off going to a junk yard and picking up a used one for $75 IMO.
