twin i beam

I recently crashed my truck and to me it looks like the driver I beam is bent but not having anything to compare it to I was wondering if it is suppost to have a curve to it

I don't think so. Go to a junk yard and look at one. They are also on vans and covers a lot of years. Welcome to FTE

Welcome to FTE! Sorry to hear that you had an accident. Is your truck 2wd or 4wd?

I've only owned one 2wd OBS in my life and I don't remember what the beams looked like, sorry, not much help.
