cross member replacement

I got a straight cross member out of another 2004 v6 sedan a few weeks ago, I had it dropped out with leading/trailing/etc arms, suspension, knuckle, calipers, rotors, and everything else still connected. My mechanic James just got back from vacation, were gonna start the job in a few days.

Has anyone else tried to total their car and replaced the rear cross member? Also i dunno if I should have him install fresh bearings before we get the knuckles in. I forgot to check the donor car's mileage so I don't have a clue if they're worn out or what

Dude I was joking, I didn't purposely jump my car over a curb backwards and sideways.

Anyway, my brother was at my fathers house today and he unbolted some of the stuff to get to the cross member. The driver side trailing arm absorbed most of the impact, its a little bent. It bent the cross member where it was connected too, and the parking break cable is broken.

He gave me an oil cooler for the trans as well. I'm going to Honda tomorrow to get the exhaust hangers and a gasket. I'm also gonna get pick up some ATF for a flush and the little radiator thing

I just got two used Michelin tires mounted on my spare stock wheels, I put one on the new rear end. Now I need to rip the lug lock off the driver side front so I can replace that leaky tire, then Ill get it aligned. I guess I fell off my brother's radar, he was suppose to do the engine work but I guess I need someone else to do it.

she looks pretty good compared to having the rear wheel at a 75degree angle
