A wheel alignment should include looking at the rear. The rear gets straighten out first, then the front is adjusted.
What do you mean you had trouble rotating the tires? Couldn't get out the lugwrench or the cash ;-)
IF the frame is bent, it has to be straightened out first. You need to truley be able to decide how much you'll spend to get your car back in shape.
Just to throw numbers,
Say it takes $250 to straighten the frame ( I have no Idea what it runs)
Another $600 for struts, another $70 alignment, $200 for tires,
So for a rough idea its $1200. Make that $1220.( Can't forget the donation ;-) )
Can you buy a car for $1200 to replace what you have in running shape with any other consideration included? My guess is probably not. So it's worth fixing from a financial standpoint IMHO.
