What year, 95 right?? I NEEEED a wire harness... well actually all the connectors plus like 6" of wire. But probably easier to get the whole thing.

Also need headlight assemblies. Not the motors or actual lights, just the metal assembly, cover and plastic.

Also fuel pump if you don't need it.

yeah im cool with selling everything you have listed. and yes it is a 95
i want to sell the complete wiring harness from trunk to dash to under the hood, everything. $150 sound good?
and for the headlights what about $50
and you would have to cover shipping from 46516

oh and i dont know exactly where that guy in the video put the jack when dropping the assembly because i had it on the subframe and the assembly would not balance. i had to place a jack also on the transmission to drop it. i am guessing he had it on the back of the oil pan. since was not sure about that being able to support it i did not risk it.

and with 2 guys and an impact wrench dropping these subframes intact took an afternoon

has anyone ever transfered a rear subframe with brace to a 90-93 car?
my subframe does not have the mounts for the brace so i was wanting to transfer the entire subframe (after restoring it of course) but the subframe also bolts to the chassis (i havent checked yet but i figure if my subframe does not have the mounts then the chassis likely does not have the threaded holes)

suggestions?

I saw an ebay vendor that was selling the old Brainstorm style rear brace-that would be simpler than a rear subframe swap.

I put low mileage '95 subframes in my 93LE.
Really not hard, but I would swap the diff too.
especially if you are doing a 1.8 swap at some point.
Don't ask how I know.

well yeah definetly i would swap the rear end. im just wandering how one attatches the subframe brace where it bolts to the chassis on the 95......and while this subframe is only 16k and mine is 75k mine is in way better shape. no rust...the 95 has surface rust.....im thinking eithor blasting and powder coating it or welding brackets onto my subframe then powder coating it

You can run with the brace off until you add the mounts.

I welded nuts to plates and welded them to the floorpan.
remove or protect the carpet though.
