I do plan on adding either brands arms and possibly getting coil overs but that wouldn't be for a while! So with that being said which k member will play best with my stock components for several months until I upgrade the rest.
Also my car is not set up for drag racing or course racing, I drive it 1-4 times a month but I will take it to the strip eventually.
Well, in all honesty....they should
work pretty similar, assuming that Brand U has a quality manufacturing procedure for the K-Member. Their S197 K-Member is a copy of ours.
That said, I am not sure if they used our K-Member to make their jig, or not. If they did, I have faith that our (BMR) K-Member will fit better, because we re-engineered our K-Member after they released their copy of ours.
I always recommend going with the innovators, and not the imitators....but, I can definitely see why some people will purchase the less expensive option.
As for A-Arms, they make such a big difference in the dynamics of the car. The steering, braking, handling, suspension movement.....they help tremendously. Keep in mind, Brand U does not offer tubular A-Arms. We do, as you likely know.
Thanks for considering our components, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.
