Removing a Must. II crossmember for a 38 chev. frame

Hi, I recently bought a 38 chev. sedan with a stock must. II crossmember welded to the frame. I also discoverd that the upper A arm is 1/2 inch fwd than where it needs to be, is cutting it out and redoing it with a after market unit the best way to go, I'm afraid if I leave it in the wheels will not center right. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Also if I cut it out will may frame need exstensive work? Thanks Guys

I have installed M-II front ends in 3 old chevys, 1in a 38 and 2 in 39 s I moved the centerline of the spindles ahead 3/4 inch from the stock suspension center, to center the wheels in the fenders. with a lowered stance and small diameter wheels and tires the wheels will appear to sit back in the fender opening if you mount the suspension in the stock location. I am not real clear if you mean one upper arm is ahead or both arms are ahead.

Hi, Thanks for the info, the upper A arm and the hole in the frame that suppose to be the center line of the axle is 1/2 in fwd, from what you said I might be in the right position. Thanks
