subframe supporting the engine weight?

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Can you weld a mount to the subframe?

Your still using the existing mount (minus the motor mount) plus some weight on the sub frame? I don't see why it wouldn't work the sub frame is pretty strong. Plus you still have the other mounts.
