well here you go boys and girls( sorry for shity spelling im in a hurry)
i took tons of pics so i didnt have to type as much lol

it is a PA Racing k member cost me about $350 shipped and about 1.5 hours to install it wiht a buddy ( he is in several pics) i bought mine with the spring buckets so i could use my coil sprinhgs untim i changed to coil overs

well heres the pics

pics of welds on k member




play by play you can pretty much use comon sense to see whats going on from pic to pic





^ vert v shaped brace




sterring shaft bolt being removed


rack removed


engine being supported by a jack, then romoving all 8 bolts that holf the k member up


old k next to the new PA racing one


stock arms fit great on the new k with ZERO problems


do not tihgten the a arms right awat, wait until k member is back on car and you can put weight of car on are so you dont put un needed twist on the bushings


putting new k in



first problem, small ground bolt on dirvers side in the way, just have to take out and drill new hole for it no bid deal


side view


lots more header room


steering rack bolt is to long



added a couple washers to the bolt head side to take up the space, not biggie


putting springs in with a floor jack, make sure to clock the sping right




going back together





couple diff pics of the new room you have




and thats all there is to it ( in a nut shell)

i was amazed at how well this k member fit and would buy it again it i had to!

any questions please ask me!

hope this helps some people:D

reps would be cool :)

Wow great write up. Mods throw this into the how to section please!

How does it drive now with the new K member? More or less NVH? Better handling?
