Same kit I've had for 3 years, I've had no problems out of it, you will love it when you put the turbos on, which you have to have 1 anyways but makes it alot easier gettin to things

Just make sure it's not the chromoly kit, unless your only planning on using it as a race car

Yea it's adjustable.. They have 2 different types of k members, 1 is steel and the other is chromoly which is alot stronger than steel but it's real brittle... On normal road driving you run the risk of it cracking or breaking... I put prolly 15,000 miles or more on it and never had any alignment or balljoint problems... Some ppl will say that the tube kmember isn't meant for everyday driving and that it will tweak your frontend and never stay aligned... I know alot of ppl running tube k's and have for 10 years and never had had any problems from them

Alright awesome! Now now do I know if it's the chromoly? Cause I went to details and stuff of the package and it doesnt specify at all?

I've had a tubular k member and a arms and my complaint is the a arms not the k member. IMO stock a arms are perfect for every day and street/strip. Problem I hVe with mine is no steering stop on them so when I attempt to perform a u-turn my wheel rubs where the stock steering stop would prevent it from rubbing.

Not busting thread, but can a skid plate be adapted to it? I have one on my SN95 and glad I do. Saved my oil pan just today. If I hit the right bump at the right speed I could go airborne so I keep stock Ks, but they're heavy. Eibachs 570 springs.

The oil pan doesn't hang below the kmember, I have a mmr 7 quart race pan and never have had any sort of problem with stuff hitting it or bottoming out.. What skid plate are you taking about?

No wasn't this kit as I don't have coil overs up front. My tubular a arms have te spring perch so I didn't need coil overs, but not sure if others have my problem?

If you plan on daily driving your car I would definitely look at the maximum motorsports k member it the only k member kit on the market that is ISO certified to withstand a crash it's a bit more expensive but worth every penny
