OK so i got a 2004 SRT4 and i need to put in a new cradle...the sway bar brackets are welded to this one for some reason lol. I already got the 4 cradle bolts loose but was wondering...are all cradles 00-05 the same? will a cradle from any 2gn neon fit? i know the only difference is a small P/S mount screw hole that can be drilled but is that it?

Just be sure to antiseize the sway bar bolts on your replacement one.

What I did was replace those mile too long screws with stainless shorter ones that just make it through the weld nut, and antiseized those.

That extra length is what rusts, and expands, making removing them nearly impossible.

I love it when JY's don't want to bother stripping parts off a major piece just to sell it.

But they probably figure most of that would just be collecting dust anyways.

The rack would likely be the only other thing that would sell.

We needed an axle stub for our 1952 M37, the guy sold us the entire knuckle assy and inner axle for price of the axle stub. Rock ON
