anyone know if the lower control arm should be 90 degree's to the frame rail. Is there any kind of diagram that would show the angles.

Actually I'm asking about the other direction. Looking straight at your wheel drum. If you would put a framing square on the frame and the other side on the center line of the lower control arm-would/should it be a 90 degree angle. Why the strange question-Slightly bent front frame rail -bent inward on pass. side
about 1/2". This would seem to put the strut rod in the wrong position which would move the lower control arm back.

Lower control arm will typically be a little more than 90 from vertical. Probably 95-100º

Upper control arm will be probably around the same (maybe a little more) if you haven't done any suspension mods.

Lower control arms should be close to parallel to the ground.
