Oil Pan Blues got you down??
I'm your Huckleberry. I have nothing to sell only knowledge to share.
After replacing the shocks, springs hydraulic lifters and motor mounts I went down an unexpected highway intersection.. and cracked another oil pan.
1986 300 SDL
I have a good friend who proposed we place a steel plate under the oil pan, the picture is in mid-fabrication... the steel pan ultimately lives with the strength of the frame.
It has a 4/5 inch clearance from the oil pan, and I swear it is an easy to do fix.
As "they" say your mileage might vary!
