Racer17J, Is this on a metric frame? That cross member is bowed up on the passenger side to clear the converter. I welded a thick piece of angle iron on the fram rails and used a 1X2 inch tubing for the cross member. I welded some 1/4 inch metel where the bold were for extra support. Also put a piece of 2X3 tubing in side the frame rails to have somthing to weld to.
