Years ago I replaced the rear crossmember with a 2x3x1/8-inch length of box section, with the intention of fitting a tow hitch. This crossmember is plenty strong enough to support the bumper, so I fabbed these brackets using the plasma cutter, and added a gusset for strength. The brackets support the Olds piece using its original mounting holes. The blue towel is protecting the ceramic coating on the exhaust tips.
