But then, wouldn't the flange almost like adding a shim between the chassis and subframe and effectively changing the geometry of the suspension? Would it be more effective if the flange are machined off so these are exactly like dowel pins instead before installation?
The subframes can only move small amounts in high load situations, so were not talking about extreme movements where bolts would sheer off. I t basically just cuts down the amount of slop in the subframe to unibody. The flange area is so thin that it almost acts like a crush washer and fills any imperfections once compressed.
