I purchased a pair of CGS Chassis subframe connectors for 65-70 Mustangs. I put them under my Mustang to check the fit and they aren't even close. Am I missing something here? Am I the only one that has had this problem? I can make em fit..but I could have made my own at that point.

They are exact copies of Lakewood Subframe Connectors. I contacted CGS and even know they didn't say in the auction, they like the Lakewood weld-in connectors, require moving the rear frame inward. So..I should have known better and I will just modify them to fit.

So instead of this II
they will look like this / \

No big deal. Other then the fitment issue they are made very well, and I'm hard to please. Can't complain about the $45.00 I paid for them either
