After much work and testing the 84-88 cradle brace has now been reproduced. Confirmed: Fits all years!

Cost - $55 + Shipping (Estimate Currently 15 Canada wide, 20 United States)

*I have some gently used boxes now so shipping is a bit more affordable now - boxes for this bracket size were expensive!*


*going through the list sending DM's if i dont receieve a reply in 48 hours I move to the next person*

Here are a couple pictures of the product. This is for the tranny side of your cradle.

I have fantastic positive feedback and 0 negative feedback.

***UPDATE: We made another batch and are available now!***.

Thanks for your interest!

I'm sorry if I don't know exactly what this is for.

I'm curious, but what exactly does this brace replace?

Doesn’t replace bit rather reinforce your cradle where the tyranny mount goes. Great piece that ensures you won’t end up with a cracked Cradle a must if you have a swap. Great product I have it

I just picked mine up from Shawn (the guy who makes these on a little laser). Quality of the laser cut and bends on the press brake look very good. It is probably a good idea to give them a couple of coats of tremclad or other paint though, since it is mild steel and will rust otherwise. I plan to install in the next couple of days- Does anyone happen to remember that size of the bolts that clamp the trans mount above where these braces go? I want to pick up some new bolts, washers and nuts before the install, as they probably need to be longer than stock ?

Great product, Not sure if it is necessary to spot weld in place, or just bolt in place for it to give the extra support to the cradle?

You reuse the stock bolts. The length, grade and size will work perfectly. Happy you like the bracket!

BTW: That bracket is an older version.... we have a stainless variation as well. I have several

PM sent. Thanks for all the support! This product was not an easy task. The manufacturing process took awhile to be perfected. So happy my updated design is making a lot of people happy on this forum!

Hello I have now 20 in stock ready to be shipped. We had to go with a new company to press the brackets... price is now $55.00 plus shipping. Same great product.

Marcus, received mine yesterday. Dropped right into place on my 86 subframe. Thanks for stepping up and taking the initiative on this product. If I owe you on postage, send me a pm. Otherwise, "keep the change."

Thank you for the kind words! great to hear. No issue buddy shipping went under a dollar - over. I will eat that cost - my gift to you. I double check each bracket on my template before they leave my house. i'm so happy it fit perfectly. If you are unsatisfied at any point email me - I will fix it for you!

I just got my cradle braces today, they fit both cradles. Once I get around to it, I’ll have the cars up in the air, I’ll unbolt the mounts and bolt them in with the braces and weld them.

Thank you,
Ron
