Since the 1998 Mustang GT/T45 uses an offset style of transmission mount it really limits your options of aftermarket mounting systems. With this cross member it finally you to use a polyurethane mount with no extra modding. For me, I was having an issue with my transmission moving too much (factory mount) and causing my driveline to hit a e-brake bracket but with the Stiffler crossmember and Energy Suspension Polyurethane Mount (4.1104) it no longer collides with the bracket and makes the car feel and shift so much better. I absolutely love this product!!
Also make sure you get the non-Cobra T45/TR-3650 transmission mount if that is what you have, there is a difference between the two. I tried using the polyurethane mount from Late Model (sorry guys) but it is too tall and will not fix the issue since it makes you raise the transmission up more than before and still allowed the driveline to collide. I also removed the exhaust hanger bracket and did not use any of the mount spacers that are supplied since I have torque arm and panhard bar while lowed 2.5".
Overall, great price for a crossmember that is adjustable for other transmissions, allows use of polyurethane mounts, allows more room for exhaust, and looks great!!
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Bought this to replace the factory crossmember to Gain more clearance for my exhaust, and it did just that. Quality is definitely there and the finish on it is very nice. Come with all of the hardware needed install!
I'm swapping a tr3650 into my 98 mustang gt convertible. The existing crossmember makes the transmission sit way to high and the driveshaft yoke hits the undercarriage. Would this mount make the tranny sit a but lower? Asked by Michael A.from El Paso | Comment00
Best Answer: This would be the correct orientation for a 3650 install. Answered by Karson S.from Hewitt | Comment00

Everytime I have delt with LateModel, it seems to get better and better. I have had all positive experiences which is much more than i can say about Summit, or American Muscle. I like the mom and pop shop feel i get when i deal with LateModel. We had a family buisness turning wrenches and a huge part of our success was customer service. Specifically treating every single female as how we would want our sister of mother treated when going to a buisness. We were always more than fair, accommodating and made sure to make all of our customers leave with a smile. And it worked. 30 years later my brother is still in buisness. Yesterday, I got that same type of treatment by Ian. Thank you Ian, you really went above and beyond like this was your personal buisness. Late Model, you just def locked in another lifelong customer thanks to Ian. Semper Fi
