Wow, I can’t believe “professional” shops do this. Seems pretty common too. Guess this is why I decided to do the work myself. I can learn and I know what was done and how.

Mainly for cost reasons. If you change the geometry then none of the available solutions will work. Its a goal, not a must have, but I think it makes sense.

I actually looked at getting an IX subframe and modifying my front frame rails to accept it to get clearance. If I had an IX chassis I would most definitely go this route!

I think the firewall below the blower assembly is more in the way than anything. I don’t have a 6 cyl though so I can’t measure 😃😃

Its possible because thats what Arc did like you say. The body mount points arent in the most ideal place which is the issue.

A new subframe that does not require a modified oil pan would work better and probably be cheaper.

The engine sits further back. Subframe is in relatively the same place in relation to the wheel well.

The only good option IMO is a new subframe design.

If you move the subframe far enough forward to clear the oil pan you would need different and much longer control arms! IX style arms might work, but they aren’t exactly cheap and easy to find!

Area needed highlighted in picture.
