    which is better? Goodmark or Golden legion? I am about to replace the floor in my 73 Z with a full assembly (with braces- no torque boxes) anyone have experience with either?

    No personal experience, but Goodmark stuff has been horrible for me. I hear good things about Golden Legion

    Golden Legion is the company that makes most of the stuff they get it from them

    I used AMD but took out the torque boxes and the main crossmember before I dropped it in.

    got mine off of NPD for my 81, I believe it is AMD but am not sure. fit was perfect and quality was there, I did not have to modify it either which was weird.

    Why would you buy the AMD one and cut that stuff off, haven't gotten around to actually doing mine, but it seems like it would be easier to do the whole thing than cut it up like that.

    Because it wasn't rusted out, the crossmember help keep the car square, & would've been more hassle to get the old torque boxes out, & I made $100 off the AMD ones.

    Duh, I was thinking about the torque boxes from my frame of reference where I am going to have to replace the frame rails as well, so they would be really easy. I can kinda see the crossmember after thinking about just from the idea of not messing with the front subframe alignment. I might have to look into that, getting that alignment right was the one thing that was really worrying me about doing the swap.
