K-Member & Coil Over Kit
This UPR K-Member and Coil-Over Kit for your 1979-1993 Mustang with a 5.0L or 351W based engine includes 12" 200lb coil over springs. This spring rate would provide a slightly softer than stock ride while still maintaining good street handling characteristics on full weight cars. We recommend this kit for street and strip applications.
UPR's Chrome-moly K-member kit will save more weight and exceed any strength limitations of mild steel, while allowing maximum header and oil pan clearance. This kit was designed for the abuse of drag race and Street Enthusiasts, most importantly it will handle the everyday wear and tear of city & highway streets like that was its main intent.
When you see this kit in person you will be astonished with the quality of the components and welds - far better than OEM. All while still retaining all factory wheel and engine locations.

I purchaced this kit for my '85 foxbody, and overall I am pretty pleased with it. The kit came packaged well and the only fault I had was that there were no parts lists/instructions for the kit. The only pieces that I was unsure of though was two washer/spacers that, from the research I done, is for the rack. Install went smooth considering some other threads I've seen. The rack was tough to get on and the coilover sleeves were loose on the struts, but a layer of duct tape underneath the sleeves worked perfect and helped with any noise. Ended up grinding both motor mount nipples to get the engine dropped in. Other than that, rides great and the clearance is amazing! Shaved alot of weight with it too. I usually don't review products but since I noticed there was not a review for this, I wanted to get one out there.

I bought this just a few weeks ago and overall the kit is really nice. I wanted to make sure I made a couple of call outs that most will not know until they get ready to install the K-member. First - Kit comes with no instructions. Second - When installing your steering rack the passenger motor mount pad hits the rack and doesn't allow it to sit flush. Two options - either grind the rack and k-member or grab some washers to push it out. I searched around on the net and seems others have had the same problem.
In 1989, Mark Mainiero and his son Joe started UPR Products with Mustangs in mind. With the help of their employees Jeremy Martorella and Bart Tobener, they brought in more racing victories and records than any other shop of that time. In 1998, Joe recognized the need for a company that fully understood the Mustang racer's suspension needs. While making customer service his main priority, he strived to offer the strongest, lightest, and highest quality parts at an affordable price. A firm believer in the “keep it simple” philosophy Joe made sure all his components could be easily installed and adjusted. Shop UPR for high quality Mustang performance and dress up components.
As a deployed service member, there are not many avenues of contacting companies back home conveniently. Between the time difference and use of wifi or morale phones, it can be challenging. Luckily the team at LateModel Restoration emailed me back quickly and gave me everything that I needed for a smoothe purchase, and a few more that followed. They were quick in reply and quick to help me out and I have my parts on the way to my home now because of it. I will be shopping here primarily and I recommend it highly to fellow Mustang folks.
