Talked to a couple of collision repair shops, both were very helpful in answering some question. The biggest thing I learned was that a very important measurement to consider, along with the outside to outside corners is the squareness of the inner 1/3 of the frame, meaning the area from just in front of the front seats to just in front of the rear spring, or control arm mounting locations.
I was told that if the inner measurements are off then the frame cannot be straightened.

I will be getting this, but now have a better idea what to look for.

Thanks.
