Chassis Engineering AT-0052W comes as a weld-on Universal Transmission Crossmember with a 2 inch drop.
Chassis Engineering Transmission Crossmember tubes are internally reinforced, heavy duty 1 3/4 inch OD tubing with a 3/16 inch wall.
We recommend using these with side engine mounts only, to avoid stressing the bell housing.
Our universal transmission crossmembers will fit most standard or automatic transmissions with rear mounting, and are available in both a Bolt-on and a Weld-on option, each available with 5 separate drops and can be cut to the width you need to fit your frame.

However, we do have a collection of car and transmission specific crossmembers, so before going the universal route, check and see if we have one available for your setup. If we do, it will save you a bit of fabrication work.
SS-0112 – for 4speed, PowerGlide and Turbo 350 transmissions
SS-0114 – for Turbo 400 and Turbo 700 transmissions
SS-0212 – for Ford C4 transmissions
How to determine which universal transmission crossmember to use:
1. Mock up the engine mounting location using Chassis Engineering mounts.
2. Mock up the transmission placement, aiming for approximately a 2-4 degree downward angle of the tailshaft.
3. Measure from the bottom of the transmission cushion to approximately the center of the frame.
This will roughly correspond to the transmission drop. This “drop” is measured from the top of the transmission crossmember tube to the top of the mounting plate.
