K-Member Fox Body

Are there any aftermarket K-Members like UPR, QA1, Team Z, etc... that would work with stock control arms, H&R lowering springs and Bilstein struts on a 1990 Fox Body? I'm currently running the stock k-member with H&R lowering springs and bilstein struts and have my car at a friends shop getting some things taken care of. One of them is couple of oil leaks and he recommended that it would be a good time to do a k-member swap but a little low on funds right now. So if I can save some money now and do the control arms and coil overs later down the road that would be better for me. I've been out of the fox body game for a long time. Any advice would be much appreciated.

What indy said ^^

Stash that $300 away and add to it until you can get all the parts or something more useful like a turbo kit

Thanks fellas for the advice. If I really wanted to purchase the whole kit I could but it's just a street car so would it really be worth the expense at this moment? I'm just trying to get it back on the road and not let it sit in my garage as much as it has been. Turbo would be nice but it already has a S-Trim on it.

I've had a few and really like them but for your situation I would skip the tubular k member. Yes you'll lose some weight and open up a ton of room to access everything easier including your oil pan but not really something that is needed especially when your just trying to get it back on the road to enjoy.

Apologies I was on tapatalk and did not see the sig. Looks like it's at an ideal level of fun without going overboard, 400/400 is perfect IMO

Cheers
