    If you are still pondering the k-member, I wish I had swapped mine years ago. Aside from the weight savings, I now have a TON of room to work now, and it looks much cleaner....plus I can adjust the front ride height in about 3 minutes with a jack and an allen wrench. One of the best upgrades I have done.
    I supported the engine in the bay with a chain going over a bar spanning the shock towers. The heads were off, making it much easier. The swap went smooth. Much easier than I was expecting.

    I would not recommend those type of coilovers on the rear for a street car. The ones you are looking at use the stock shock perch to support the shock and the springs, something it was never designed for. Do a google search and you will see the stories of those perches breaking off and leaving guys stranded. A better solution if you want adjustability is either MM weight jacker control arms or WolfeCraft racing adjustable spring perches that are welded in the stock location and allow you to use the smaller coil over springs.
