The only company that certifies their K-members for street duty is Maximum Motorsports. I contacted most of the others available and they do not guarantee theirs will hold up on street driven cars. Ask before you buy and be safe.
P.S. Some K-members have the option to reuse your stock A-arms and suspension if you desire to go that route.
although this is somewhat true alot of the kmember can be driven on the street just fine...only reason MM says that because its bigger and heavy than the others...i know upr,aje,qa1 kmembers can be driven on the street daily with no problems..and i have hit plenty of bumps and potholes lol..and ran over plenty of things.. no dents or dings in my aje or upr kmember..there thousands of people that drive aftermarket kmember cars daily with no problems... im sure if you hit a pothole hard enough it can brake something but im sure even if the kmember was stock it would still break some stuff if its hit that hard..

No problem then. Thank you for the civil reply.

Those are some of the K-member manufacturers I called during my research.
While I'm sure most may hold up ok, I just wouldn't want to take the chance.
I'm opting for the Maximum Motorsports to be safe, even if it's a bit heavier.

Just look at the build quality difference vs the UPR.

It is a pretty difficult job.
You have to support or remove the engine and basically R&R the entire front suspension.

There are numerous options and other suspension parts you can replace or change when replacing a k-member.
Look through what's offered and balance between what you want vs what you can afford to do.

Any factory friction parts that will be reused.
Ball joints, bushings, etc., etc.
Consider new struts if reusing factory style.
