Rear Frame Floating Cradle Nut Kit $52.99

Rear Frame Floating Cradle Nut Kits


This kit replaces the failure prone GM rear frame engine cradle nuts. The factory floating nuts are held in place with thin steel cages that tend to rust and fail leaving the floating nuts loose to spin. 

Tools needed: A high speed air or electric die grinder with a thin cut off wheel. Welder to reweld the flaps once these have been installed. 

Note on welding the flaps: I talked to Ed parks at the Fiero Factory in Alabama. He told me they do not weld the flaps. They just bend them back up. The frame in that area already has openings in the frame. The best way is to weld the flaps once you install the floating cradle nuts but welding them closed is optional according to Ed Parks. I would suggest welding them closed.

Cutting the flap in the frame:

Shipping is $7.50  (USA)

These fit into a small postal flat rate box. Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.
