Default 1970-81 DSE Frame "Extras"

I bought a DSE frame, but it appears the motor mounts and steering shaft are sold separately. Being these don't come with the frame, are there better/cheaper components to use? $600 for motor mounts and a shaft seems kind pricey considering the coin dropped on the frame.

There is a set of DSE set back mounts for sale over in the classifieds, for like $40.00 shipped. Not sure if these mounts fit your year sub, or if there's even a difference.

The first gen and second gen engine mount kits are different, make sure you get the correct one.

Is DSE the only choice for mounts on their frame?

Yes, unless you want to start fabbing something. The second gen frame stands are really far back on the crossmember, it actually positions the urethane mount behind the crossmember.
