I had to form the struts slightly to fit. I expect the cast iron can take the added stress. It is my understanding the oem were all sheet metal. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to use a good used oem next time, just be more careful not to damage it. Guessing the cast is @ 3/16 " thicker. It wasn't easy to hold it up and start bolts by myself. I had to use my legs to hold it up to get bolts started on 1 side and move to the other and repeat. It was rubbing inside at the pickup near the front of the engine so it may be thicker to the inside but not sure if it wasn't that way with oem. HTH DON TX
