If it was me ide start out taking meaurments for relocation of crossmember..then see how the movement will affect the use of exiting crossmember along with driveshaft angle along with the possiblity of fabbing or alternative crossmember options...some one else may know of a crossmember to use,if the exiting one cannot be.

The one time I did a job like this, I took the cross member out and put the transmission in held by a jack and what ever was necessary to be able to move it around . This allowed me to get everything lined up perfect, then started getting measurements for the cross member. Start with the original to see if it will work.
