Mustang K Member Brace 2 Point Curved Maximum Motorsports 1979-1993
Part Number: MMKB2-1
The Mustang's K-member is the mounting point for the front control arms, the steering rack, and the engine. It is a critical structural member because it carries the loads into the chassis from the front suspension.
While the heavy stock Mustang K-member is a rather stout item, it still is not capable of handling all of the suspension forces directed into it from the front control arms. During cornering, the forces from the control arms cause the K-member to deflect, resulting in alignment changes.
The Maximum Motorsports 2-Point K-Member brace helps eliminates the K-member flexing by bracing across the K-member, from one side of it to the other.
In 1994, Ford made a 2-point K-member brace standard equipment on the 5.0L Mustang. All V-8 Mustangs continued to come with 2-point braces through 2004. It seems that Ford agrees with us; the Mustang needs a K-member brace!
On 1979-93 Mustangs, this 2-point brace may have slight interference with automatic transmission cooler lines. These lines can simply be relocated slightly, or use part number KMB2.
