    Catera rear subframe quetion

    Hello, everyone. I am new to this forum and Cateras and well, I have had a little mishap and bent my rear trailing arm and subframe. It is a 2000 Catera and my question is, will a 98 subframe bolt right into the 2000 unibody without any modifications? A 98 is all I have been able to find locally. Thank you for any help.

    PS Sorry I mistyped and didn't notice the S missing in question. Edit will not let me correct the title.

    I've never had to exchange them but other than the '98 having softer springs they are identical. Just carry your '00 springs over to the '98 suspension. If I were you I'd take the opportunity to rebuild the '98 rubber bushings to polyurethane ones. It'll never be easier than when the suspension is sitting on the garage floor.
