    I hate to have to disagree but I can't see any way that ST165 crossmembers will help
    if your doing a 3sgte swap into a ST162.

    The ST165 front to rear crossmember is angled more to the drivers side at the rear in order
    to make room for the drive shaft that goes from the tranny to the rear diff so the rear of a
    ST165 crossmember won't even bolt up to the frame of a ST162. So at best you would need
    to use the original ST162 front to rear crossmember and you could swap the ST165 side to
    side cross member in and its 6 side bolts will work but the center bolt that attaches the side
    to side cross member to the front to rear crossmember will not work now so I don't see any
    advantage in useing either of the ST165 crossmembers in a ST162.

    I think the front to rear crossmember with the motor mounts still attached is the ST165 one

    The only way I could see these being needed is if you wanted to turn a ST162 into an All Trac
    but we've been over that topic a few hundred times and why it's not feasible.

    Be very carefull, Dave is right and the two aren't compatible.
    Look at the engine cover mounts as well, you can't fit 162 covers on a 165 without
    re-drilling holes etc.

    Also the ST162 86-87 and 88-89 crossmembers are different as well and you can't swap them
    as the chassis bolt holes are different, the rubbers are different too


    Here I cleaned up an 87 to fit on TEMS (88), the bolts on the 87 are wider (right)
    and the mounts are way different too
