    i take it the subframe was rusty ? .....there is a recall on those subfrmaes you need to contact ya local dealer and get them to check the recall list and then it has to go for inspection and if it is found to be to far gone it will be replaced under warantee ..if isnt to bad they will clean it off and repaint it with some good quality paint ........
