On a side note, some custom builders are building frames for X-body replacements. Some of them are fully boxed and are way stronger than the original frames under these cars. Also they are perimeter frames so they reduce the amount of twist these cars see under High Torque acceleration. Now these frames are not cheap I think I priced one up at Art Morris and as a full roller with adjustable coil overs I was around $20,000. Now that sounds pretty expensive, but I priced up a full stock frame restoration to roller blasted and powder coated, with new A-arms, spindles, power rack, mossier 9" rear, new springs and shocks plus some other odds and ends and I was over $10,000, and that doesn't include repairs to soft areas.
