1981-1988 GM G-Body (Grand National, Monte Carlo SS, Malibu, Grand Prix, Cutlass)
Metco's one-piece driveshaft safety loop is custom-designed to fit the floor pan of the 1981-1988 GM G-Body. The loop is designed to replace the factory floor pan brace located behind the front universal joint, so no drilling is required for installation. Like all Metco loops, the ring is made from seamless DOM steel in an oversize dimension to accommodate lowered vehicles and aftermarket driveshafts. The loop is physically the largest ring that will fit the G-body tunnel at 6.50" OD. The flanges are laser-cut from heavy-duty steel and the assembly is precision-welded in a fixture. The finished loop is powdercoated black and packaged with installation instructions and high-grade hardware.
This is the original bolt-in G-body driveshaft safety loop. It has been copied many times, but no others match the quality and precision-fit of the Metco Motorsports loop. This loop may fit earlier 1978-1980 G-Body applications, but with modifications necessary because of the smaller transmission tunnel.
