WTB: Engine Cradle Frame


Recommended Posts

If I were you, if you are doing this job yourself is to get a support that holds the engine and transmission in place from the top and just remove the carriage and replace it.

Something like this


Pre-1995 - DTC codes OBD1  >>

1996 and newer - DTC codes OBD2 >> https://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/gm/obd_codes.htm

I would check with a body shop that has a frame straghtening machine - it is possible the damage can be fixed with the frame machine. That would be a lot less work than replacing the subframe.

If you find a cradle with arms. Really only about 20 bolts and some brake lines. Never would I try to repair a cradle. Actually not too bad of job..
