The front of the brace mounts to the bottom of the K-member. The rearward points of the brace mount at the K-Member-to-chassis mounting points.
This K-Member Brace is design includes a structural steel web. This splits the suspension loads. Part of the load goes into the unibody at the rearward K-member to chassis mounting points, and part goes straight across the K-member to the opposite side.
The mounting bolts for the brace attach through a structural tube. Unlike commonly used flat tabs, the suspension loads pass into the brace without deflecting the mounts.
Note: 4-Point braces will not clear long-tube headers. MMKB2-2 will clear most long-tube headers.
Installed this brace in my 86 GT. Took a little time to wrestle it in to get the holes to perfectly line up but my car is nearly 30 years old so I'm sure the K member has shifted around a bit. Took it for a spin after the install and did notice it was a little tighter especially in the corners. This is a smart buy for anyone looking to stiffen up their foxbody and it really freshens up the look underneith the car.
This is by far the best experience I have ever had buying parts for my mustang. There is no other place for me, then LatemodelResto. I have bought multiple parts over multiple orders and have had nothing but a smile from ear to ear. Aaron Westerman was my contact person from LatemodelResto. I could not ask for a better customer service representative than him! He went above and beyond multiple times for me and made my experience with Latemodel the reason I keep coming back. LatemodelResto will continue being my #1 stop for my Mustang parts.
