I don't know guys...., constraining parts that are meant to move can be tricky. What is it you're trying to accomplish?
My rule of thumb has always been that the trans need one additional degree of freedom higher than the motor. Meaning:
- Poly motor mounts use rubber trans mount
- Solid motor mounts use poly trans mount.
Never use solid / solid or a trans mount stiffer than the engine mount or you're going to break parts. Trans cases and whimpy trans x-members.
Now if you want to use a solid trans x-member to body mount then I think the above rule of thumb becomes even more important.
However, the thought of making the trans x-member a ridge object tying the two uni-body rails together sounds interesting. But then again as someone else mentioned its a rather thin stamping. So my $.02 is I really don't think there is much to gain here so why bother.
