The offset bushings didn't give enough clearance for the rack. It still caused the shaft to point directly into the headers. I contemplated removing the headers and dimpling them at an exhaust shop, and or whacking some dents in, but decided for now to throw back up the oem k-member until I figure out what the f*&^*. It's just way too off the mark even with the offset bushings, which is unfortunate of course, especially cause of the time invested.
I'm probably going to just sell the k-member, and keep the coil overs and a arms etc. I will research more as to which k-member is best before I jump again. The positive side to this is now I am very familiar with the job of replacing the k, and collateral components (my little silver lining). I think once I sell the UPR k member and replace it with another, I should be able to cut my time to do it by 1/3 (4 hours total).
Which K-member is the most highly reccomended and best fit giving especially my recent obstacle? I heard that Griggs or Maximum Motorsports, but have also heard QA1 is really good although I have heard bad of that too...
