K member and control arm question

So I might want to be upgrading some parts that now have almost 130k miles on them. And suspension is my priority. I DO NOT want to go coilover route, because I don't feel like spending $1400 on a MM kit.

Can I get the MM K member and AJE control arms with spring cup, and will the springs and strut go in like normal? Or is my request way out of the question?

You must run front coilovers with the MM (and Griggs,) K-members.

Bite the bullet and get front coilovers. You won't regret it.

Thats how I did it. Only took 7 years.

However, I did have more fun with the "rolling project" vs. a garage watchdog while the whole car was morphing.
