BA. Yeah, I was assuming he knew that front end parts replacement isn't going to fix a sagging frame.
Sounded like he's looking for any other DIY temporary corrective action.

Big Dave Tall ball joints are as mentioned to correct camber issues in cornering with a first gen Camaro and a third gen Nova. They will not correct his issue which is a bent frame.

Only solution is to put it on a rack and using hydraulic pressure push and pull the frame back into alignment. Then to reinforce the frame structurally by adding gussets or adding additional material to deepen and widen the frame member.

BA. I've heard of "tall ball-joints" in relation to other cars to modify front-end geometry specifically for cornering but I've not particularly heard of a retro-fit for what you're trying to address. Sorry.

as you all know the x frames collapse in a bit, do they make a offset upper ball joint so I can fix my alignment for my 64 impala
