Front subframe reinforcement and steering box clearance


Recommended Posts

So I just got my driver's side engine mount reinforced/boxed, but noticed that clearance between the steering box and my new piece of metal is pretty tight... so tight that I had to grind some material to get the box to sit flush in its mount, and it's still touching the boxed engine mount.

That said, is this going to create a problem? How much flex is there in the steering box mount/motor mount? I'd like to avoid putting additional stress on an area that's already a weak link... certainly don't want to make things worse by trying to make them better...

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks for the response! I was able to get about 1/8" by hammering and grinding, but we just welded up another for my buddy and your picture was very helpful... just had to weld the plate inside the motor mount rather than over the top... duh!

Anyway, thanks again!
