'91 2wd/Vortec 350/NV3500 - will G Force cross member work?

Postby bcs296 » Wed Aug 09, 2017 7:38 am

Everything I can find on the G Force cross member (https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-770309/) is in the context of an auto transmission. I have a NV3500 in my truck. Will this line up/work?

The only difference I know of is the th350 tailshafts that can be different.

The auto and manuals for the 4.3 and v8 all have the same mounting point. If the truck originally had the 4.3 then you can use that crossmember.

But if you're set on it then go for that one

Awesome, thank you. It did originally have the 4.3.

My truck is too low to run driver side exhaust under the stock cross member and I'm not sure I want to go above it either. The G Force would solve that problem, but it is $$$.

Just modify the stock one. Cut, weld in some 5in pipe and then done.

I almost always do a custom crossmember, however I don't like the ones that have a huge piece of pipe sectioned into them like the G-Force, they wind up way too heavy for the actual strength they have. I like to bend up a double hump cross member with roll cage tubing. :thumbup:
