Yes, I'm starting to get excited. I'll be picking out my wheels this morning and my hood and Boss/CS fascia w/fogs should be here any day this week.

Yeah, I was fine and no, my airbags did not deploy. Thankfully, the actual impact was not that violent. My car, more/less banked off the Jersey barrier.

Should be no problem getting the K member, just make sure you get the brace too (and the a-arms if you can afford them). It's all about the same price as the Ford parts. If you're going to order it I'll get you contact info for a guy out there.

You need this:
2005 - 2012 Mustang GT | K-Members | KM018 - K-member, Standard Motor Mounts, Standard Rack Mounts | BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis

and this:
2005 - 2012 Mustang GT | A-Arm Support Braces | AAS001 - A-arm Support Brace | BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis
Question: Are those parts rated for street duty and suitable to be used on a DD vehicle?
The blurb at the end of the BMR K-member installation instructions, makes me think they are not.

I did a good bit of research a while back on K-members and their supporting parts.
The only company I could find that rated theirs for street usage was Maximum Motorsports.

Just want you guys to be safe.

I don't see why they would be unsafe, but I wouldn't put serious mods on a car that was my daily driver in the first place. Maybe axle backs and a tune, but other than that, I keep anything I depend on or subject to a lot of street driving stock.

---------- Post added at 08:41 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:36 AM ----------

Is this the blurb you're talking about?

Quote:
This product is an aftermarket accessory and is not designed by the vehicles manufacturer for use on this vehicle. As such, buyer assumes all risk of any caused to the vehicle/person during installation or use of this product
Seems pretty standard to me, and I think you would be hard pressed to find any aftermarket parts that didn't carry such a disclaimer. My SCT says something similar before loading the tune, that doesn't mean it's unsafe and/or unsuitable for road use.

Yeah, I appreciate the heads up! This car is my DD but I just bought a Cavalier and I'm going to try to resist driving my mustang as much after I get it back. But I know myself and it won't be long before I get tired of driving the cavalier and start driving my mustang more.
I sat in my mustang for the first time since the wreck yesterday. It is so comfortable, I forgot the way the seats huge you and I forgot about the leg room. That cavalier sucks as far as comfort.

My insurance is really cheap, they are giving me hell about everything. So it's gonna be an ongoing battle. I'm going to get the OEM K member and radiator support after all. :/

---------- Post added at 03:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:55 PM ----------

Btw, I will also be returning my car to factory ride hight with the OEM springs. I'm thinking about getting the RTR front, rear and side valance kit.

Ride quality. Because I do drive my car almost everyday and the city streets here suck giant radioactive donkey balls. And I'm going with the RTR trim which will bring down the body line making the car look lower. I rode in my buddies stock '12 and I almost cried because it was so smooth. Lol

Yeah, there's no such thing in C.C. I think the asphalt the City uses comes with potholes built in. Lol

Primer,

Out of curiosity, where did you get your trunk filler/deck lid panel?

Alright called bmr today to talk to them about their k member. They haven't changed the design on three years and their current model they call a street certified. They have sold a little over 3000 of them with 0 incidents. I asked about the message at the end of the install guide and they stated they put that there because they don't take responsibility for the work the installer does. So they are not held reliable for injuries caused by faulty installations. I am neutral about the previous discussion and I am only bringing resolution for the people who google and end up on this thread so they have more answers then questions. I looked up maximum motorsports and they unfortunately don't sell a k mber for s197s so that option was out for me.

Well, I hate to play the devils advocate but out of 3,000 here's 1 failure. I don't know if track use is worse then street use but this is something to look into.

That's one reason why ME is cool for us Mustang owners. We get to research are parts and find out how they do in the real world.

I know we want to see you back in your stang ASAP, but I'm glad for this downtime at the moment.

Anything I state on that would be an opinion but I would say track conditions are more stressful based on you don't accelerate to over a 100 miles an hour everyday on the street. The street does offer pot holes though. Was this the only forum entry u read about the kmember prime?

im gonna say in drag type racing, more energy is being transfered to the back of the car during acceleration. when you step on the go button the front end actuall gets lighter. even at high speeds, your still driving on a flat surface. so imo drag racining would be no where nears as hard on a k member than daily driving.

---------- Post added at 09:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:03 PM ----------

oh i forgot to say though im sure auto cross would be pretty tough on it?

It would work over your motor mounts though in drag racing more if think. Which makes me ask the question how much power is he running in his motor. The more the engine toques when u launch the more the k member feels it

very good point. i think that would mainly affect the motor mount areas though. as safety might not be as big of a concern there, but still a concern. either way it still probably wouldnt be as substansial as a huge pot hole.

i think the big picture here is safety no matter where your driving it. a k member failure could be fatal!

The G's from autox would be a large force on the K member, but I see your point. The K is taking on a lot.

I bought one but i tell u my concern will be when I hammer down on it because the engine has roughly 668 hp to the fly right now and I will be checking those urethane mounts all the time. The main reason I am getting it is because this will prevent second gear lockout. It is a better design then stock and the mounts hold ur setup in place so I can redline it in first and still find second

i would just keep an eye on it, and do visual inspections frequently.

Agreed and I think we take that chance a lot whenever we dip into the aftermarket communities lol. Do you think we would see a dime from an aftermarket company if one of their products are bad. I don't see recalls coming from American muscle or blow by racing if something broke prematurely there

Yes also agree with that, I just wish I had a hoist so I didn't have to do the crawling.

I looked up maximum motorsports and they unfortunately don't sell a k mber for s197s so that option was out for me.
Good idea GT!


When I did my research I had a few other manufacturers tell me basically the same thing.
What you should have asked them is IF, they will guarantee them for street use. What they told you just gives them a way out if it should happen to fail. Also note that those numbers and claims are from them, so of course you won't get the whole story. Not that I'm dissing them in the least, you will get that from almost any manufacturer.


I wish you had asked Maximum Motorsports about their K-members for the older Mustangs even if they don't make one for the newer Mustangs, just to compare the difference in the replies. MM says right on their webpage "Tough enough for street, strip, and road course use." BMR does not.


P.S. Do a Google search for BMR K-Member Failures and see what turns up.
Then do the same thing for Maximum Motorsports K-Member Failure.


This could be the cause of a lot of discussion back and forth, but what it is all going to boil down to is this, " Most K-members are not designed, nor suited for continuous safe street usage."
Since the OP carries his children in his car with him at times, I wouldn't really recommend using any aftermarket K-member in his case as he has decide not to do.
