Oh ok. Cause I welded the X member mounts the other way per their instructions. I have been wondering where the trans mount pad sits in relation to the bottom of the frame where the X member used to bolt to the frame. Is the mount pad flush with the bottom of the frame or about the middle?

The mount for the x member is 1.5" above the bottom of the frame rail.

If you welded your's per the instructions then you are probably 3/4" bellow the original location. If you use the weld on "L" bracket for the factory x member it shouldn't be an issue.

I sent the frame to the frame shop, as suspected the right frame horn was one inch higher than it should be. Hopefully this cures the small issue I had with tie rod clearance on the bottom of the oil pan on that side.

I also got the rear diff back freshly built with 3:73 gears and posi traction.
