87 R10 Suspension crossmember

I'm sure this has been asked before. Has anyone modified their stock front suspension crossmember for weight savings. This is in a drag truck that sees a lot of track use and some street use. It doesn't haul anything any more. I know they are heavy and I would like to lighten it up. I was thinking of cutting the middle out and putting some tubing to replace it. I don't need a drop member for it. I want to keep the stock a arms since I just rebuilt everything recently. I know there are some places that make all new stuff but, for $4,000 I can build a lot of horsepower.
