Hello, I have a 84 monte carlo, with automatic tranny and gm rearend. I plan on changing to a ford 9 inch rearend and a 3 speed saginaw tranny. Questions about the crossmember, will the manual tranny mount to the crossmember? aslo about the drive shaft, it is gonna be the same length?

the crossmember will work, and the drive shaft should work unless you was useing a automatic from a truck before. the tail shaft from a truck trany is alittle bit longer than one from a car. hope this helps. almost forgot, you will have to change the pinion u-joint, the cups on the 9 inch are alittle bigger than on a metric 10 bolt. they do have u-joints that will convert without any modification, i just dont know the part #
