    Hey everyone,

    I've asked QA1 why their A-Body K-Member is only listed as 67-72 instead of 67-76.

    Here's the answer I got:

    because it uses the 67 to 72 biscuit motor mounts....where the 73 to 76 k members have the spool type.....

    use can put in it a 73-76 A body...just need to use the biscuit mounts.

    Wouldn't it be easier for them to simply list it as 67-76 with a * saying "from 73 and up, you require 67-72 engine mounts" ?

    It's a really interesting part to overhaul the whole front suspension... and i'd most likely be able to use a Milodon pan for AutoX. :p

    Most people go with the usual but I have an AJE tubular k Member its been in for 3 years never had an issue. But we all have a choice and that was mine.I did do some research on a few other mopars that have them ..I got rid of the torsion bars and went coil overs, If you plan on keeping your torsion bars this is not the k member for you.

    I have 3 of the QA1 k members in use....all 3 used to have torsion bars. Only one does still does. The other two have coil over shocks on them. I used the HemiDenny kit on one. And Gerst Suspension kit on the other....all 3 cars are used for racing. Plenty of room under the hood now.

    checked out this post, and happy people are happy so far with the QA-1's, because i just plopped down the big bucks for the handling suspension kit.

    S.Rodney...If you get this K-member go with the Schumacher poly lock biscuit motor mounts. 200 bucks, but will last a long time.

    (i too wanted to stick with the torsion bar suspension)

    Specifically for a 1974 Dart Sport with LA318 ?

    EDIT: Just re-read the whole thread, yeah you must mean Schumacher biscuit mounts "for 67-72"... which QA1 told me I needed... kewl.
