Question K-Member Question?

Just wondering where the A-Arms mounting points are in comparison to a 79-86 or 87-93 k-member.

I ask cause I'm thinking of maybe putting a 4.6 in my coupe but I'm running the 03 a-arms with an 85 k-member and I'm worried about pushing the wheels out too far.

mounting points should all be the same other than the 05+ platform...the difference should be in the body changes...as the 94+ platforms were a bit wider...and pushed the A-arms slightly outward more than the fox...

doesnt your 03 arms push the wheels outward more?

From the 79-04, the FCA mounting points on the k-member were in at least five different locations.

An 85 k-member has the mounting locations pulled in about 1/2" per side in comparison to the 90-93 k-member. Whether this works with the SN95 FCAs is a function of what tire and wheel size/offset you are going to use.

I'm asking if I swap to a 96-98 k-member if it'll push the a-arms out more than the 1/2" the 90-93 k-member does?

Your 85 k-member and a 96-98 k-member are approximately the same width.

Cool, so did they pull the a-arms in again on the newer ones to compensate for the longer a-arms?

You want to keep the 86 k and sn95 arms to get the right amount of camber.

Nope, with that setup it's very hard to get any camber out of it. You currently have the optimum setup aside from tubular.

At least according to what I've read on here anyways.

with mm cc plates notched out shock tower 94/95 spindles I think I was able to pull 1.8 per side.
