I flip the jack as needed to keep both sides the same.(some jacks will bend better one way than the other)
Easy peasy and it doesn't cost a dime if you have a junk rim or axle and a jack.
It won't hurt the frame unless you bend it WAY too much or buckle the frame. Use a sheet of wood or something that spreads the load to cushion the contact point if your jack tries to make a dent in the tubing instead of bending the frame rail smoothly.
Yes sir... what you just described will also be a good fix and it wont cost a dime if he has the stuff to work with, good advise.....!
