    Will your poly motor mounts let me keep my X-member lowered. I have it lowered by about 1-1.5".

    I am getting a ZZ502. I hope they'll work[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    I have the poly mounts from ORD. They fit perfectly in place of the original design. Unless you modified an original set, these should bolt right up.

    To clarify,

    I am talking about the x-member at the T-case. Will these mounts be able to slant the engine enough to get the drop at the back I need?

    Thanks,
    John

    I have the engine and trans mounts. They are the same size as the originals but way stronger. So IMO they will work.

    Yes they will work, I would advise fitting the mounts with the t-case dropped, that way theres no stress on them to start with since they're not going to move around much. Really you can move the rear a decent amount since it starts so flat and it's a long ways between the motor mounts and the t-case mounts. You're talking about changing it about 2 degrees or so, not a huge deal.

    Be aware the mounts may not be a total bolt in, depending on the condition of your frame the bolt holes may not all line up. I had to drill a new hole in my mounts to get them to bolt in. The bolt holes are slotted to keep it as easy as possible but these frames can move a lot. Just so you know.

    Nope, we don't have them for the early GM's, only '73 and up. Maybe I'll try to find a set to start on....
