I've also read that some say the stock control arms wont work with the QA1 K member.
I'm going to sell the QA1 Coilover setup and run bilstein shocks and the MM coilover kit. I want to run the steeda x2's and I don't see any possible interference running stock arms on the qa1 k with the turbo kit. Will i be able to get it aligned and in spec? I wouldn't mind having a more rigid arm up front.
According to their website, "For best results, QA1 control arms are strongly recommended," which is not the same as required
. They sell just the K-member by itself, so that tells me the stock control arms will work just fine. And their description of the K-member makes it sound like it's pretty close to stock configuration, so alignment shouldn't be an issue at all. So I'd probably go with stock arms.
You could also check with QA1 and see what they say about using other ball joints in their arms.
