Hey all
Replacing rear crossmember (see photo) and when ordering from AMD. There is a note that the crossmember “extensions” are not included..
for the life of me i dont see any extensions on my car. Perhaps
They rusted off long ago. I just dont want to waste fifty bucks if they are not needed
Can someone school me.
thanks

I would assume they go outboard of the crossmember under the trunk floor pan extensions.

Sounds right. I just double checked and have no evidence of them on my car whatsoever. Can someone post up a
Photo of them mounted?

I dont recall my 72 Dart having them or showing any evidence of them being there. Doesn't mean they shouldn't be there but I didnt put them on mine.

Are they necessary? I'll have to check my nephews '72 and see what he's got.

Yup. Might be demon. Dart sport only.

Here's what they look like on a Demon. Frame rail spotwelds will for reference.


perfecto! Thanks.
So that would be right where leaf spring perch attaches to frame rAil on swinger.
Im thinking more demon/dart sport
