Summit Racing Lightweight Transmission Crossmembers
Strengthen your transmission support and reduce the weight of your vehicle with Summit Racing lightweight transmission crossmembers. Through advanced design and manufacturing, these crossmembers are stronger than standard boxed-steel transmission crossmembers, while weighing an average of 35-percent less.
The crossmembers are a direct bolt-in and do not require any additional brackets or adapters to complete the installation. They also allow you to run a true dual-exhaust system with most popular GM transmissions and do not affect ground clearance. The welded design with clear powdercoat finish gives these lightweight crossmembers a fabricated look that’s sure to complement your ride. Order the model recommended fit your application.
