ACM and DHR Proud to Announce new K-Brace for the S197's - 03-30-2009


As we all know 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 DHR 4-Point K-Member brace eliminates K-member flexing by bracing across the K-member, from one side of it to the other, as well as connecting to the chassis mounting. The position of the DHR brace provides a direct load path into the chassis for the cornering loads from the control arms. This bracing is done at the rear of the K-member (the area of greatest deflection).

The S197 Mustang’s come with a 2-point K-member brace as standard equipment. But this unit is much more solid. As with all the parts ACM sells we use these on our personal cars and in racing. We are very proud to help in the release of this part and other new parts from DHR that are coming soon.

129$ shipped to the 48 or an apo

Is this something that's just for manual-transmission cars?

Will it help me go faster in a straight line?

Seriously, nice piece, I would do it if I was into turning the wheel while racing.

Great price too.
