Crossmembers are the same, just the mount that bolts on each side is different.
Go to a wrecker, get engine mount plates for a V8, XA-XE and buy new rubber engine mounts from repco or equivalent.

I second what ELGT says, you need the adaptor brackets that the engine mounts bolt to... They are getting scarce but they're still out there.
