Mustang Maximum Motorsports K-Member Kit
Improve suspension geometry while reducing front end weight with this 1979-1989 Mustang k-member package from Maximum Motorsports! Your factory suspension components are heavy and leave much to be desired in the handling department. Maximum Motorsports leads the industry in suspension design and engineering for your Mustang. This kit includes vital suspension upgrades to drastically improve your driving experience!
This kit starts off by replacing the heavy, factory k-member with a lightweight, stronger, and more durable k-member. This tubular design allows for increased clearance in the engine bay while decreasing weight by 26%. The stiffer k-member provides better and more precise handling while maintaining stability when cornering. The front control arm mounts are shifted 0.75" straight forward. This increases positive caster and, with the included reverse offset control arms, improves initial corner turn-in and reduced understeer.
Tubular Control Arms
Next up is a set of tubular front control arms. These are reverse-offset control arms that pair well with the new k-member. This set will not alter the stock wheelbase. These control arms include urethane bushings for reduced deflection and quicker steering response. These arms are constructed with 1.25" diameter DOM steel tubing for strength and durability. Low-friction ball joints are pre-installed to improve ride quality and handling. These arms are finished in a black powdercoat finish.
Coil Over Springs
Maximum Motorsports includes 10" 300lb coil over springs with this kit. These are designed for use with Koni, Tokico, Strange, and Lakewood front struts that are NOT included. The 10" 300lb rate is great for Mustangs that see heavy street and entry-level performance handling at the track. This kit allows you to adjust the ride height of your Mustang so you can dial in your stance easily with the included tool.
Along with the k-member, tubular control arms, and coil over kit; this kit includes the following essential components.
