My mechanic couldn't fully straighten out my tires during a 4 wheel alignment due to the a frame being bent. Does the whole a frame need to be relaxed or just repaired and how much is that?

A frames are replaceable, I have bent a few in my day. As far as cost goes they range anywhere from 75 bucks to 350 bucks, cheap china replacement to high performance speed parts. Then you will have labor on top of that. So you get to choose.

Thank you for you answer, that was very helpful. Do you know about how long it would take to replace the A frame? My mechanic's rates are pretty cheap so I might end up replacing it instead of buying a new car.

I would replace it, that will be a lot cheaper than buying another car, should only take around 1.5 hours labor to do the job, of course it will have to be realigned after the A frame is replaced. Then watch your road and avoid potholes and bumping curbs, hitting any one of those can bend an A frame very easily.
