Chassis question

Old tdi

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m working out whether to patch again the rear cross member on ‘95 300tdi or replace the cross member. In poking around underneath I have been trying to identify a couple of rusted brackets and attached tubular members that don’t seem to appear in any of the parts diagrams.  The parts in question are tucked right into each rear corner of the cross member, the bracket apparently bolted through the cross member horizontally (though corrosion makes it difficult to be sure), and are attached to a vertical tube which in turn is bolted to the bottom of the tub.  On the passenger side the bracket is right by the exhaust hanger.  Can anyone tell me what these parts are and whether it is possible to get replacement brackets?

many thanks.
