Pull off the sway bar and look up thru the bolt holes or some other hole in the frame onto the inside and I will bet you a dollar that at least one side has a visible crack that has been welded and then they welded the plate over the top to reinforce it.

I don't remember seeing one of these frames cracking there but my Gran Sport (A BODY) had a crack right in that exact spot that I welded up. One side could have been cracked and they added the reinforcement on both sides for what ever reason, to make it look factory, in anticipation of the other side cracking, OR both sides were cracked. But that is the EXACT spot my frame was cracked.
