HQ HJ HX HZ Crossmembers

Are HQ cross-members the same as HJ, HX and HZ?

Are they the same for 6's and 8's and manuals and autos?

Reason I ask is my 253 / Supra W55 installation looks like it will fit the standard cross-member with just some elongation of the slots. Rather than screw with the neat custom one I removed with the 202 / Celica W50 combo I'd rather just try to get another one.

Thanks all.

Its been ages since I modded my HZ stato, but I believe there is a couple of slightly different x members. I have no idea what mine was to start with but when I bought the car it had been fitted with an aussie 4 speed. After that I had a celica 5 speed, T5 and then a getrag fitted to it all with only slight mods to the x member and the occasional fore aft adjustment, I think at one point using extra holes already in the body for different driveline combos.

Commercials are different to sedan /wagon they are narrower to fit between the perimeter frames.
Trimatic and 4/3 speed manual all share the same cross member and trans mount to suit the frame type.

Turbo 400 cross member and mount are different as the T400 is longer with a wider mounting point on the extension housing. They also have a reinforcing plate either side of the mount which partially makes the a boxed section.

Not sure about the T350 in late HZ.

So it looks like if I buy any old cross-member from a sedan or wagon, auto or manual, 6 or V8 (excluding turbo's) I should be pretty right. Cool.

Thanks again for your help and a Merry Christmas to you both.

Where are you? I have one here holding up some dust, if you're close its yours. I'm near Shellharbour NSW. Posting it could be a logistical nightmare!

Just looked up your location by the post code on your account page. You are probably as far away as is possible without being in a boat. I'm near the water on the other side of the country.
