Specifically, I'm looking for a pic of the pads/crossmember that the motor mount "biscuits" rest on.

Thanks,
Richard

They actually sit on the aluminum front suspension cradle.No steel crossmember other than front/rear bumper bars. I can load a pic of the cradle if you want.

Thanks, that'd be great. I just wanted to see what the factory setup looked like for reference.

Now that I have a better idea what I'm searching for, I found this

Are the two circular spots where the motor pads sit?

If that's it, no need to add another pic.

Thanks. I've decided to sell the LS2 Corvette mounts and go a different route.
