is it bad to run the car without the front cross member?

Postby alltracst185 » Sat Oct 22, 2011 2:19 pm

I have to moddify my front cross member or fabricate a new one because it's hitting my 3" exhaust. Is it bad to just not use it? Does anyone know if the Cusco front brace replaces it?

Unless you are a miracle worker of some description with massive aptitude, good luck with getting the car to drive at all if you remove the cross member bro.

Why don't you use the spacer washer method.

I would modify the exhaust, myself and my friend have custom 3" exhausts and have no issues.

Ya I thought about that, I'll most likely go that route.
