    I have a steel and a 4130 -aje k-members.
    I would only buy the chrom-moly 4130
    K-Member.You can even see that you have
    a motor after install.I think the AJE K-Member
    is the only route to go with a v-8 swap.You
    need to chop on the stock cross-member
    for some oil pan V-8 installs.

    I use the AJE K-Member with my own lower
    control arm that I fabed.

    Thanks Rich,glad to hear you like yours.

    Thanks Randy

We would need 25 orders to go ahead with the deal though, he will make up the jig and everything for them. This is for the k-member only. He may be able to make some arms as well, I can talk with him more on that.
    If you get a price on a chromolly one as I am interested and will buy one. as of right now i am in the process of back halving my 94 lx. and would they be able to have universal motor mounts as i am planning on transplanting a 541 ci mopar big block into her

    go with "AJE" for this..

    I have been working with them for some time now and the finish deal is really good. They also have a neat engine mount setup that does allow you some different things to do. I got one with a 557 big block in it as well as one with a small block sitting in the hole. The last one I went with huge brakes and coil over setup like a mustang to make even more room to do the exhaust. Sure it took some time to get it all worked out but it is all done now and he could do one for you without waiting for things to get worked out... just my .02 worth.....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    there is something to be said there.

    It looks as though AJE no longer makes the tbird k member. I looked tonight and it's no longer listed on jegs. After all I went through getting mine right I'm not surprised.

    They are the only game in town right now.. maybe someone will step up and start doing something... I would be more than willing to let someone copy this set up that I got with the coil overs if they wanted to. Yes I agree that this was a LONG time in getting this setup just under the car much less driving it.. only time will tell on that part....rich
