Weld-In Frame Stubs

Weld-In Frame Stubs

We Build Frame Stubs

Some cars have a frame that doesn’t allow a simple Mustang II based suspension installation and is too narrow for a GM subframe.  For these cars we build frame stubs that allow a 2-4” drop and include provisions for bumper and core support mounts so that your sheet metal remounts with very minor trimming.  


Fatman Fabrications Has A Solution

We make a wide variety of Weld-In Frame Stubs for a multitude of makes and models.  If you don’t see your vehicle listed below contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss your specific application.

We Build What You Need

We can build the front half of any of our frames offered. These work great to repair a botched subframe installation by reproducing the axle centerline and radiator core support positions your bumper and sheet metal will refit with ease.

Note Frame stubs and crossmember kits are not designed to fit an OE engine found in many of these applications. Front mount, front oil sump engines will typically not fit the new crossmember. We're modernizing the suspension, so it's always a good idea to modernize the drivetrain as well.
