Question

Help, my Z 28 has been rearended sometime in its life and we could never get it to align right. we discovered the left subrail is cracked and bent right over the rear axle. We have replace the rail with a new one from Rick's, my question is how can I get another plate that the exhaust hanger bolts to on the rear subframe??
Thanks,
Mike

I've gotten them off in a couple of minutes with a small grinder. Just tack-welded in place.

Otherwise they are very easy to fabricate. Someone was doing a repo.

Not that it matters, but I have seen two different styles of plates. For those that are taking notes...BKH

Some have semi-circular notches on center, along the top and bottom edges.
