crossmember change
« on: January 20, 2006, 09:56:00 PM »
I'm currently switching from a turbo 400 to 700r4 on my '86 silverado and am wondering if i will be able to reuse the crossmember by modifying it or if i will have to get a different one.  

'86 C10 Silverado 350 with 700r4 and 2500 stall
Dropped 2" in front and 2" in rear but soon to b 4" in rear
18x10 wheels with 295/45 18 tires

If you are talking about the transmission crossmember, you can reuse it.  They are the same.  Just the position changes.

If you get the police / taxi package rear tail shaft housing for the 700R4 you don't need to move the crossmember.
