Re: 87 R10 Suspension crossmember

I have modified a few cross members for a drop, but what it you set it up in a jig. Cut the portion out between the frame rails, and weld in a 2x4 1/8 wall piece of steel. Then gingerly finish plating in the new section. This may save around 20 pounds. As when I sectioned the crossmember I had about 5 pounds of metal cut out.
