    doing a k-member requires the motor to be suspended, or removed. they make a bar that goes across the engine bay and rests on the inner fender lips. then you chain the motor to it. you also, have to remove the rack and pinion, brake lines, spindles, shocks, etc.. to be able to pull all of this out. then reinstall the new parts and align it.

    you're looking at least a full days work.

    For safeties sake shell out the money for warrentied parts.

    If they do break the aftermarket company will replace the parts.

    I would suggest UMI as they have stout parts!

    i don't see where he asked about warranty of the parts. he asked about what it takes to swap the parts out and how much we have paid to have someone do it.
