I recently purchased an aje subframe and a arms for my car. My car is a 92 with the early subframe and motor mount configuration. I am posting this thread so its documented that their mounts are wrong. They make the motor sit 2" + too high. The way i figured it out was i put the motor and trans in with the mounts on the motor. I dropped the motor down and leveled it up. The motor is 1/4" from the steering rack and fits very well. I DO NOT ADVISE BUYING AN AJE SUBFRAME UNLESS YOU CAN MAKE ADJUSTMENTS. If you expect to pay 1000 dollars for this stuff and put in the car it wont happen you need to be able to make adjustments to the chasis for it to work.

Even if I hadn't read your other thread on this, I would take the Neosporin and E6000 to mean that there was a a lot of swearing and blood involved in the K-member swap.

Yea will its been tough but ive been able to do alot of things ive always wanted to do to the car so hopefully its all worth it. No e3000 was used to hold the subframe or mounts in although it may have been pondered at one point.

What he said. LOL! I was gonna say the same thing on the other thread. Also noted the Twizzlers and Skittles for fuel :D I've been lurking on both these threads, and feel ur pain. I'd a probably thrown in the towel and sent the whole mess back. I've got an '89 in the shop used to be around southern Ohio known as the "WarBird" with no motor and an OLD AJE setup. It did not come with motor mounts, and I'm praying I don't end up with the same fight :cool:

The old setup doesnt have the motor mount issues but the shock mount on the AArms needs adjusted
