Hey everyone. Working on a 1980 Malibu. I’m prepping for engine and tranny install. When I got the car the crossmemeber was loosely in the car. No bolts or mounts of anything. Not to ask stupid questions but how exactly is it bolted down on the frame? Anyone have some pics so I can see what’s needed or some direction on how to go about it. Thanks

When I disassembled my 442 there were no rubber isolators. It was just bolted metal to metal to the frame.

I believe the better/softer ride cars got them. None of my cars had them.

so I don't really need them then, I guess I can just bolt it straight to the frame. even better more money for go fast parts :)
