I didn't plug my trans cooler lines. If its a common thread type it would be easy to do with plugs from lowes or something.

I tried to get that mount but I heard he was out. Im not sure about the poly stuff. Fill me in. I figured I better plug it up so salt and crap does not get inside and make problems. Work is going to give me the plugs, they just don't know it.

I'd at least re-enforce the mount with thicker metal, v6z24.com has shown a stock 3400 bending those.... then fill with 2-part poly however you can...

Yeah those are my stock ones. I welded the sides a little to help them and then painted them. I did stratch the paint putting the lower ball joints on but I mean they are going to get dirty.

Well ran into a problem here. I am looking for the pass. side sub frame with both horz. bushing and also have a mount for a dog bone. I thought 90s - 93 ran those on the 2.8 and 3.1L. Correct me if im wrong.

Not quite. Only 87-91 will work in that case. The 92 and 93 will have the horizontal bushings but no dogbone mount.

Corsica frames work too, I am using them with no issue.

Barry, the 92-93 do have the mount on the subframe on the passenger side which was the side in question.

Looks like I failed again! LOL

Yes, 92 and 93 are the only passenger side frames with horizontals and a engine dogbone bracket.

For some reason I was thinking tranny dogbone....

The billet trans mount could be fabbed pretty easily if you really wanted to. It's very simple.
