Good tubular K-member brand ???

Anybody know of who all sells tubular k-members and how much they cost?

Anyone have any preferences?

I just figured that when I do get my engine done I might as well throw one in because I would eventually do it anyway and with already going to be doing an engine swap it would make it MUCH easier.

Thanks,
Jerred

Just pick up a mustang magazine, they are all over the place in there. Several companies make them. You could just drive over to USA or Dallas Mustang and pick one up. Everybrand has its good and bad points. Depending on header size the D&D and Ground Pounder has clearence problems. Antony Jones has the most header clearance, but you got to run a motor plate.

There are a LOT of choices. I would like to do one too, but I haven't researched them in detail yet.

Realize that some require you to use their A arms AND go to a front coil over kit.

Some will also increase the wheelbase or move the hub forward/backward in the wheelwell.

Some allow for adjustment in moving the engine backwards towards the firewall (most I saw as an inch, but there could be more)

You may also want/need to get a bumpsteer kit as well as new bushings to keep your steering up to par.

Yeah guys, I know all of that but I am wondering about what brands people are using, how much they like them and how much they cost. I know they are all over in mustang mags.

Thanks Abecx, I heard the UPR were pretty good, luckily I have a good 3 months or so to do research

Anthony Jones (AJE) does not require a motor plate, does it? You can get it with mounts...

Hey rtigert,

yeah AJE are badass, just went down to J&L today and saw a black hatch that had the whole AJE front end (k member, a arms, and coil overs). That bitch was BAD:D

It's like $750 for the kit and that's not even the moly one, i think that runs around $950-$1000

Not enough money though:(

Here is what I paid:
AJE chromoly K-member
$449.00

AJE chromoly A-arms w/bushings (Heim's are $50 more)
$279.00

So it's $750 for the moly. I'm running long tubes and there is a GOOD 3" from the header to the K-member. I didn't have to notch, bend, cut, or clearance ANYTHING for them to bolt right up.

It's the AJE struts that are high.... $1,000 but that does include spindle, strut, and coil over.

Sorry rtigert I didn't specify that this was price including installation. Yeah, I saw a car with the spindle and strut additions and that car was badass
