    I don’t think a K member brace can be used with the steeda K can it? Because looking at the design of the gussets, that’s why the BMR premium K is designed the way it is.

    That tube on the steeda K connects behind the A-arm mount to make up for a lack of a brace, whereas on the BMR K, the A-Arm brace mounts between the two sides right there and I’d wager the A-arm brace is just as strong or stronger as those tubes on the steeda.

    The BMR brace is also a little more forward than where the oem brace was to allow for header clearance.

    Of course you can use a brace with the Steeda version. Here’s where all the fervor started, and lots of info on it:

    Chassis & Steering


    Glad to see new ones in the works. Mine has been in now for almost seven years and has been perfect since day one.

    Thanks Joe. I'm unsure of how much the BMR brace would help with the BMR K member, but I do know that the MM brace is a benefit on K-members that retain the stock brace mounting points.

    MM did testing on this when designing their K-Member and concurred with Ford that not only was it needed, but that the mounting locations were correct based on where support was needed. If that's the stance that both Ford and MM took from what they learned in development, I won't be the one to argue.

    I suspect that the BMR would take the MM 2 or 4 point brace as well.

    We will see, as there are two kmember threads going on side by side in this forum!

    Also, Steeda has their "G-Trac" brace that will fit, along with the OE 2-point version. When I bought the MM 4-point brace, I had to just assume it would fit since the mounting points looked the same, and it was a total score that it was perfect (also made sure to let the guys at MM know this).

    I did also make a superimposed image of the Steeda and factory K's that lined up perfectly, so I was extremely confident that a brace would fit, especially since they really are a necessity!

    Very happy with the install of mine. Just had to double check the spring perch cups and drill out one hole as it didn’t line up at first but simple fix.

    No progress, but it's still on. Steeda won't initiate production again until we can confirm 10 for the group buy. We need three more - who else wants one?
