Read the MM tech on fox spindle changes; running a 97 spindle on stock pre 96 k member cars is not recommended due to bumpsteer problems.yea i decided to go with something different (im going to be running brakes and spindles off of a 97 cobra, coincidence, not off the same one) but i figure since im putting as much work into the engine as i am, might as well go all the way on everything else, just need to decide on shocks/struts and springs still?
I'm not sure KB is back in business 100% yet - if at all. But if you are considering certain autocross classes, those matrix braces and jacking rails will put you into an impossible class with an otherwise stock car. Frankly, I have them on my 01 vert and for a vert, these things ar great - adds about 27 pounds but the chassis flex is significantly reduced - in fact, I can raise three of four wheels off the ground from one side and the doors still open/close without issues. I have standard SFCs (read, no extra bracing and not even the full length) on my 86 vert and even here, flex is reduced but not like with the KB matrix/jacking rail combo. If you want this design, I beleive Global West also sells a similar set-up. Otherwise, I'd go with the MM full-length and be done with it - at least some autocross classes permit that design.i was considering the kenny brown subframe connectors, jacking rails and X brace for stiffening up the car, would that be overkill for the car, and just a regular set of weld in subframes suffice? or would the extra $ be worth it?
