    Hello All:

    After weeks of planning & initially filling the request for 10 orders ... we have great news, we are now able to offer additional units of this K-member. For those that were waiting for additional units, now is your time to act.

    http://www.steeda.com/steeda-lightweight-96-04-mustang-k-member-555-5078/

    555-5078.jpg

    Steeda's SN95 K-Member was designed to shed some weight from the front end without requring a full suspension replacement or requireing modified geometry.
    Made from a mix of 4130 chrome moly and low alloy steel, our K-member is approximately 19 lbs lighter than the OE K-member. The control arm cups were designed to accept unmodified stock control arms so tubular control arms are not required.
    Our k-member features 2 lower control arm mounting positions for fine tuning of roll center geometry. One position if for cars at stock ride height or less than 1 inch lower than stock. The second position is recommended for cars 1 to 1 1/2 inches lower than stock. For further roll center correction if you are lowered more than 1 1/2 inches check out our X2 Ball Joints.


    Finally, while the rack can be positioned in the stock location, we've made it adjustable for changes to the Ackerman geometry. Ackerman adjustment is a must for the serious road racer.
    Note: Only compatible with Rack bushings with standard 3/4 inch hole such as our urethane rack bushings. Ours as well as any other aftermarket aluminum bushings with smaller than 3/4 inch holes will not work.


    Product Benefits
    19 pounds lighter than stock k-member
    Accepts stock control arms and tubular control arms that work with stock K-members
    Two control arm positions to compensate for vehicle lowering (can also be used with X2 ball joints)
    Adjustable Ackerman geometry

    Best Regards,

    TJ

    When you say offer ... what are you referring to ... a discount?

    Unfortunately, because of the increased product costs to make this unit, discounts can't be applied.

    Best Regards,

    Just want to let everyone know that this kmember is one Nice product! Just had Steeda install one on my 03 Cobra and I'm loving it! Fit and finish is top notch and no more issues trying to get the oil filter off like on my previous kmember (non factory). Steve at the Pompano Steeda shop did an awesome job on the install and Dario and Glen were nothing less than great to me while the install was being done. Steeda rocks! If your thinking of improving your mustangs handling while dropping some weight, I highly recommend checking this one out. Works with factory control arms and springs, adjustable Ackerman, no oil filter relocation needed, and additional mounting points for the control arms if your running lowering springs. You won't be disappointed.

    Awesome! Thanks for the review. How is it driving? Did you get it on the Memorial Day sale?

    The car drives/handles great! Haven't had it to the track or anything as of yet, but even just driving on the street I can tell a definite improvement. Car feels solid and planted!

    So I guess they are still making these? What did they charge you for the install? Steeda is pretty close to me.

    They did stop production for a period of time so I jumped at the chance once I found out they were available once again and so glad I did. Install was around $400. I would give them a call and check to make sure, Super great people to deal with!

    $400 sounds very fair. IMO
