Well my ol sub to a big dump today the rear suspension crossmember broke off on the inboard side of the mount on the drivers side. Every website I look at has the 2wd crossmember but states 4wd is discontinued!? Heres the stupid part of the question are they the same? I can't just ditch the car I've got to much dough rapped up in it. Is there a way to cobble it back together with a pipe inside?

When the horse is dead whack it til it revives! :horse:

2WD-4WD are different. Best bet is salvage yard or someone on here parting out a 4WD EA82.

Except for the mount for the diff, are there any other differences in the 2wd one? If that's the only difference, I wonder if one could just cut it off the old one, or fab a new diff mount.

I've had to do the same replacement on mine, besides finding the part, it's a pretty easy job.
You unbolt everything from the tube, then just take the tube off.
Here's right before I started unbolting the tube.

I had an xt with this problem so i jammed a pipe in it. Worked great.

Normally i wouldnt do that but it knocked and there was no tittle.
