Years ago, when I bought torque boxes, I chose the ones that were already welded together(wish I had not). They were missing the flange that goes between the frame rail and toeboard, flanges were bent the wrong way, etc. My conclusion is they were designed to be installed on cars with perfect floors where the owner doesn't want to cut the floors. The two-piece units have the flanges and such and seem more suitable to be used by people cutting out the toeboards, also. Maybe someone that has held all the various styles in their hand can shed some light on this.....
