Hey TK,

I do believe your core support is a tad bit warped.

See example here....

Ideally, NO....You might want to talk to Randy (05GTO). I beleive he replaced the rad/sup in his GTO with a repro unit. Something to consider, if it fits your budget.....E

there should be bushings down where the radiator support bolts to the frame I believe, but otherwise no. but yea, you are a little bended. my channel on the bottom is open down and not up, but otherwise is identical to the one "likethat" posted.

Your support needs to look "likethat"'s. I would get another one.....you'll be fighting body alignment issues for days with that one. Or, borrow a straight one to use as a comparison, remove yours, and blacksmith it back into shape. You need a good one to use as a reference, though, IMO.
