This Ford Racing (FRPP) M-5059-A Adjustable Transmission Crossmember is a "double hump" design that simplifies installation of dual exhaust systems on 82-86 5.0L Fox body Mustangs & is a great replacement for 87-93 Mustang 5.0L. The outer tubes are not welded to the center support, and thus can be adjusted to fit most engine/transmission combinations & is suitable for Tremec TKO swaps.
It directly fits all Fox vehicles with a 4.5" dimension between the crossmember mounting brackets, like 1982-1993 Mustang. It can be used on Fox vehicles with a 2.75" mounting dimension (1979-1981 Mustang) by relocating the brackets.
The M-5059-A Adjustable Double Hump Crossmember is shipped bare/unfinished & will have a light surface rust. Prepping & painting is highly recommended for the best & longest lasting appearance.
While it is not required, it is recommended to tack weld the tubes to the support once the crossmember is installed & properly aligned.
I just replaced my 22 year old, rotted, rusted, transmission crossmember with this new adjustable transmission crossmember from Ford Racing. This definitely did the trick in helping to get my driveline to become more rigid. The old bushings made the transmission assembly sag, but this brought it right up into place. The bushing housings on either end need to be welded to the main body and I would like to point out that this transmission crossmember does not need to be adjustable when simply replacing the stock one. The holes for the transmission mount make the assembly itself adjustable so to make the bushing housing adjustable seem overkill. On that note, though, I have definitely seen an improvement in my driveline because of this and my new transmission mount. I would definitely recommend the purchase of this component.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
