Has anyone had this replaced, my rusted out and it want hold a frontend alignment. Does anyone know about how much it would set me back to have it replaced and have the frame checked out? It's been setting in the garage for about 8 months and it's killing me.

Crossmember??? Are you sure you are not talking about the front frame horns? The front crossmember bolts in.

It's the piece that is under the radiator and its welded to the front of the frame on each side. I'm pretty sure it's called the front crossmember.If you go to the link below and look at the 4th picture down you will see the part I'm talking about.

If the front crossmember is rusted, take a CLOSE look at your frame rails, both sides, just behind the Cmember. Keeping my fingers crossed.

The frame rails are good to go. They have a little surface rust, but I have already cleaned them up.

It is cheaper to repair the rusted spots, than to replace the entire front frame section.
