Before I install the new motor I would like to go ahead and install a k-member. Im trying to save some weight up front and allow for some clearance for my L/T's and Canton pan. I plan on using the stock a-arms for the time being with the k-member. Is anyone running a PA k-member? How is the quality of this k-member compared to QA-1 and AJE? Thanks guys.

Hey Shawn... Did you use your stock a-arms with the k-member. If so, do I need additional parts to make the stock a-arms work with the tubular k? Sweet car by the way.

sweet O0

the main reason i want to have the new Kmember is so i can run a bigger oil pan...but having the extra room for some Kooks LT's could persuade me to ditch the shortys.

running the bigger oil pans is key to keeping these engines running for a long time when modified especially with an aluminum block. I could alway notch my stock K member but knocking off 25-30lbs is also a nice benefit.

I wouldn't buy anything from Granatelli...he just takes other company's products and makes cheap copies of it.

How good a copy is it though? :hammer: They've got a deal right now where you get the K-member, A-arms, and coilovers for $400! How bad could it be? :dunno:

That's not completely true. they actually desing a lot of stuff. and he's got a really bad wrap on the forums.
Like a lot of compaines, the monkeys working for him Fuck things up!

I had their coil over's. I didn't like them. swapped them for Maximum motorsports.
From what I've gathered, their bushings are a weak point, and a few other minor details.

I still have their rear coil over's.

I don't know much about the K.
