This video starts by answering what K Member is. For those of you who may not know, the K member is the support for the engine and front suspension on some vehicles.
This video shows how to ‘square’ the K member in your vehicle. I demonstrate this on a Ford fox body, but this procedure is pretty much universal for all vehicles. In fact, you could use this to check how square your vehicle is with the procedures shown in this video.
Here are the instructions for installing and squaring a K member from Maximum Motorsports: http://www.maximummotorsports.com/assets/install/pdf/front_susp/MMKM-1r5.pdf
