lorry/ truck straightening facility
Explanation:
My two automotive glossaries give straightening for all types of word combinations with "Richt" e.g. Richtbühne =straightening bench.

Therefore straightening facility seems a good bet. Would wait and see whether anyone agrees/ disagrees though.

Are lots of suitable references to vehicle straightening jigs, benches, systems etc.

Maybe truck straightening system would be a safe bet as you do not have a lot of context
