    Very nice! I'm digging the roll center adjustment! Will you position the optional hole such that it will retain the stock track width (so not just moving up, but also outboard)?

    Thank you! Yes, the road race production ones will retain the stock track width.

    Weight savings? Does it lower the engine?

    I am highly confused? That looks really similar to the one that arrived at my house 20190505_195137.jpg 20190503_154911.jpg

    I saved 41 lbs off the front of my car. The k member does not lower the engine, but all the aftermarket mounts that can, fit very well! 20190505_195252.jpg

    That's enough to move the weight distribution 1% rearward. Good to know!

    41lbs taken off the front is super! (To me) it looks like it would be a major pain in the *ss to take the other parts off and put this on. I can already see wrenches flying across the garage and the foulest, most ridiculously abrasive language being spewed out at a high volume.

    Actually, this was pretty easy. I have done a number of F-body subframes. This one was by far a much better job. For one, all the bolt holes lined up perfect. Every piece of hardware was accessable except for the aftermarket swaybar mounts (not sure what's going on there Steeda). I used 3 in ratchet straps off of my strut tower brace. Once the stock subframe was out. I put jack stands under the engine mounts. The hardest part was removing the stock rack and pinion bolts. I had to use my mega breaker bar as my 900ftlb thunder gun barely moved the bolts. All in all at a liesurely pace maybe 4 hours. Wouldn't bother me to do it again.

    Wow, that's good to hear. So since you did a few in the past on other cars, would you say this would take maybe 6 hours for someone who never did it before?
