Its a rear suspension frame. It provides a couple of the hard points for the rear axle.

Got a hot picture of your oxen? I suppose your gonna put the back forty under the blade? You crazy amish, just get a john deere and call it pious enough.

Good idea! I bent the hell out of mine last year. Every time I'd accelerate full throttle the thing would hit the driveshaft. I should have taken pictures of it, the thing was demolished. I drove with it bent for so long, till the point where I could not accelerate normally without it hitting anymore.

Where are you guys getting those tie rods/torque arms? I want some of them with some ball joints like that instead of stupid bushing crap... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: But of course it wouldn't be for like 2-5 years before I actually get some...

Yes Tony, I love it very much.

Just think... there's now a part of your artwork on my car. It truly takes a village to raise a Volvo...

Very nice. So a bit of a thread jack what are the symptoms of a twisted subframe like that?
