Question AJE K member review

What's up Stangers

just got the new design AJE k member today and thought i share with all of you and review the products

Seems like a real solid piece, The engine mounts look like it is going to be little rougher ride, i am guessing it's almost like a solid engine mounts, You delete your current factory style engine mounts and use these...(My guess...)

I took many photos so you guys decide. I ordered the RR version so it has L&R extra bracing on the front. This is not really necessary but i ordered it this way for piece of mind and for street driving

Let me know what you think

I have their control arms, it is holding up fine so far, Will eventually go coil over but wanted to give this one a try since i have their control arms already.

I had mm k-member on my fox and QA on the other an95, doesn't hurt to try different combos for different cars

Be extremely careful with how the AJE arms fit to the K-member. Way not safe design. I installed one on a customers car was was not happy with how the arm and bushings just 'floated' without any real support.

Ah yes, I remember you.

Nope, no GTR for me.

And as far as Aaron is concerned, if you are talking about Aaron Garcia, yeah, he used to work with me at Stangwerks back in the day.

I skipped the step of just working at a shop and started off by owning one. LOL (I kinda wish I would have just been an employee in the first one)

yea the older ones (couple years ago) had reviews (corner-carvers) where the a-arms snapped off and another where the steering rack snapped off. they were all for "handling" situations so if you're going with just straight line racing it should be ok also don't hit any huge potholes

Not an older one, this was installed about 6 months ago. There is nothing that keeps the bushings in place. So you can't tighten the bolts all the way without pushing the bushing out of the shells. Poor design.

Man...that's just bad design, Yeah, That is the older design arms with the older K-Member, Why would they build the arm like that? of course it's gonna snap.

My arms are solid and it is one piece. "Knock on wood" it's not gonna happen or break at the weld, I am gonna take it to my the shop and have the welder inspect and weld the weak spots if they see any, I was also thinking about making another removable back brace for this k-Member, We'll see how it goes, I will put this on when sunny, It's cold and raining, I don't feel like doing it today

I know this problem, I talked to AJE about his, This was their bushing design flaw, Now they have fluted washers between the front facing bushings and rear bushings as well so when the arms are mounted, It will stay there, and not move around.

This is small problem i am not really worried about, fluted washers between the bushings are good anyways.

Take your arms or customer car's arms out and put correct spacers there and you will be fine. I would put spacers in the backside of the bushings so the arms will move forward a little, We'll see.

I had the drag racing k-member from AJE. Never got around to installing it though. the arms were mounted on it and they did not flop around.

I know AJE makes some killer drag set ups suspension wise. My glide crossmount is from them. No issues at all, and looks great.

You got a nice ride there Greg, some killer times too, My 95 pushrod will most likely go with HP single turbo kit in the future as well, I got another 96 i plan to build(Already started...), Will look you up when the time comes to tune.
