I cannot find visual proof that the rear sub-frame changed but the part numbers are different between the two gens. That being said, the part number could have changed for a long list of reasons that may or may not affect it "fitting" on your 05. I would recommend taking a tape measure and getting some rough estimates of distance between mounting bolts along with some pictures and compare the ones you find in the salvage yard to your 05 to see if its matches.....DaRut wrote:Is the K-Member/Subframe on first gens the same as second gens? I have an 05 AWD and need the rear Subframe/K-Member that goes above the rear differential and find that there are more 09 and 11 parts in the salvage yards but no one is sure if they are different or not. Other then the fact that one is rear drums and one is rear disc and the fact there is a different motor (1.8 vs 2.3) wouldn't they stick with the same casting that worked in the first gens?
