    Hi everyone
    Just got myself a Lower Cross Brace from a e36 cab for £15 at the scrappyBARGAIN!
    Came to fitting it, and turns out my front axel beam has no thereads in the holes to mount the cross brace. I been looking around on realoem and found that the cabby's have a M8 blind rivet nut (x4) is that what I need?
    And question number 2. The original crossover brace under the car, is that replaced by the lower X brace or does it mount in the other 2 holes?

    cheers

    have a look in the how-to section.If you see the stickies click on the one NealP has posted and in there in the E36 section are a few guides on the X-brace install
