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.
Everytime I have delt with LateModel, it seems to get better and better. I have had all positive experiences which is much more than i can say about Summit, or American Muscle. I like the mom and pop shop feel i get when i deal with LateModel. We had a family buisness turning wrenches and a huge part of our success was customer service. Specifically treating every single female as how we would want our sister of mother treated when going to a buisness. We were always more than fair, accommodating and made sure to make all of our customers leave with a smile. And it worked. 30 years later my brother is still in buisness. Yesterday, I got that same type of treatment by Ian. Thank you Ian, you really went above and beyond like this was your personal buisness. Late Model, you just def locked in another lifelong customer thanks to Ian. Semper Fi
