I have an 01' 426 with a tweaked subframe and looking at tracking down a used one. I believe the subframe went aluminum in 02', and I am sure 01' and 02' are interchangable, but my question is if anyone has an idea of how much lighter the 02' alum. subframe is?

Thanks guys,

I have a 2001 on ebay. Tried to sell on TT for 8 months and just posted it? PM if interested.

The subframes were the same. The only difference was that the '02 came with no paint on it. They are both aluminum.
