Does anyone have the dimensions of our front subframes or have one accessible that they can measure?
I'm looking for the width between the subframe mounting bolts, the width between the control arm mounting bolts and the length between the subframe mounts.

I can even use dimensions for a 2-bolt frame if you have one

So, only a 4-bolt frame, then?

Just checking. I might be in a spot to check a 2-bolt frame sometime next month if that's not too far out.

I also have the subframe in my garage, its a bit hard to reach because its in the back, but maybe just maybe i can try to measure them this week.
How precise do the measurements have to be? calculating them in metrics, but that shouldnt be a killer i guess.
Can't promise but will try to look after it.

They don't need to be super precise. Within a couple of cm is fine. Thanks. And yes, metric is fine.

This is off of a 2 bolt. Numbers are to center of the hole. May be off a smidge since I didn't have anyone to hold the tape
1- 41 ish ( I cut this off from when I was doing a rear engine swap so it may be off)
3- 33.25
5-29.5
6-33.75

1 105,6 cm
2 87,5 cm
3 83 cm
4 78,5 cm
5 73,5 cm
6 81,7 cm
7 72,5 cm

7 was bit harder to measure so it may be off a bit more than the rest. but still within a couple of cm i guess.

Those are my dimensions.

measured them from the inner side of the bolt holes showed in added photo
measured them with the tool showed in added photo
