PostSubject: Tubular K-Frame question   Fri Aug 28, 2009 6:16 pm

Guys

Help me with my memory here. Now it might have been on the OLD forum but didn't someone once post regarding an attempted <failed> MM Tube K frame install?

Thanks!

Tommy

The only thing I can think of that would cause the install to fail would be the fact that Mustangs have slots fore and aft, and Fairmonts have slots side to side, where the rear of the K-member bolts to the car. I have a '90 Mustang K-member on my '80 Fairmont, and I had to make some holes in the K-member wider to fit the car.

Hope this helps.

Later,
Mike.

it moved the wheels forward a hair, but that makes for better drag racing anyway. i believe mine is a D&D, same thing as upr prolly since D&D isnt around anymore i think. tis worked fine for 4 years of hard abuse. and this is the drag race kit that weighs less and isnt supposed to be for street cars, but we all know thats bullshit lol. i also put in a flaming river rack while i was at it to keep the weight down.. turns out it drove a shit load easier that the power streering i had.

I'm looking around but it seems like most k-frames prefer you use there A-Arms, camber plates.. ect.

Trying to do this on the cheap is not looking good!

I have QA1 tubular K-member and all the goods. It fit perfectly and had no issues. You can buy just the K-member and use your old A arms with it unless today they made major changes. They are great people to work with and will be very helpfull. I live just 20 min.s from them and they have been great.

That's REALLY good info!

I would like to keep the stock parts on the front end because, well there CHEAP!

My only reason to change out the K-Frame would be to make it easier to drop the pan, starter and what-not.

Ill have to look them up, thanks much!
