Mercedes C Class 2006, Front Upper Crossmember Support Bracket by K-Metal®. The frame is a vehicle's most basic element, the foundation upon which the rest of the car or truck is built. If your frame is compromised by rust or collision damage, critical systems like the drivetrain and suspension may not be able to operate properly, possibly making the vehicle difficult or unsafe to drive. The only sure repair is a new frame component, but these can be very expensive at the dealer. The smart, economical answer is a new frame component from K-Metal. K-Metal has quality replacement frame components that are identical to original equipment (OE) for much less than the OE price.
- Same quality as OE for less money
- Designed with the latest software and manufactured with modern tooling
- Direct replacement

- Same dimensions as OE part
- No vehicle modifications required for installation
The frame is the backbone of your car or truck, the starting point to which everything else is attached. If your frame is weakened by rust the structural integrity of your vehicle can be compromised, and if your vehicle has been in a collision the frame may be bent, which can negatively affect any components attached to the frame: the body, drivetrain and suspension. A rusted or bent frame won't allow the body to sit properly, affecting panel alignment and vehicle appearance. The drivetrain can also be out of alignment, which can cause vibration and affect shifting as well as other functions. Most importantly, a bent frame may not allow the wheel alignment to be adjusted to specification, which could make the vehicle handle dangerously and prematurely wear the tires.
You can try to straighten an accident damaged frame but this is only asking for problems. Even if the dimensions are only a little bit off parts won't fit right and correct wheel alignment will be impossible. The only sure way to restore the vehicle to its original configuration is with a replacement frame component. In the past, your options for replacing a damaged frame component were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE frame component. You can end up with the same type problems with a used frame or a cheap replacement. You don't know the history of a used frame and the vehicle it came from could have also been in an accident. And a cheap replacement frame could be poorly made.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement frame component from K-Metal. K-Metal offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A K-Metal frame component will look and fit just like a frame component from the dealer, so your car or truck will look new again. K-Metal frame components are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A K-Metal frame component is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge steel.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A K-Metal frame component is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A K-Metal frame component will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. K-Metal is so confident in the quality of its frame components that they're backed by a limited 1 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
