Q: Subframe Alignment
I removed my front subframe assembly to repair the bodymounts as the holes had rusted out to more than double their original size. I patched them with body mount repair plates from Performance Years. All looked good before welding, however I must have screwed up after I took my measurements because the front mount holes are now about 2/10″ length wise off each other. Didn’t notice that it had move before I welded and now I figure it out after the frame has been primed and painted……Can I get away with this small inconsistency?
A: Use two 3/4 in diameter rods to line the body with subframe before modifying any mounts. There is an alignment hole on the lower cowl section that this rod will fit into and should be perpendicular to frame if aligned right.This can be slid up and into the cowl from underneath the car.
