Tubular K-Member - LSx Engines - 1993-2002 GM F-Body: Camaro & Firebird
Spohn Performance's tubular k-member for the 1993-2002 F-Body Camaro and Firebird sets a new, higher standard of performance and quality. When we designed our k-member, we had several goals in mind.
One was to provide the performance capabilities needed for the toughest race tracks, another was to provide the strength and durability required for the demands of a daily driven vehicle.
Our k-member provides substantial weight savings and frees up a lot of room in the engine bay for our drag race customers, but it also provides the strength, rigidity, and durability for our road race, autox, and daily driver customers as well..... all in one package!
Spohn's tubular k-member features gusseted a-arm mounts for maximum rigidity and side load support. Our k-members are gusseted in critical areas (over 20 locations!) to ensure that a weld never breaks. They decrease overall weight, and provide much more room for large tube headers, turbo systems, etc.
Our k-member will accept stock a-arms, or for additional weight loss and performance enhancement we also offer tubular a-arms (click here).
Our jig was built around the factory k-member providing for an exact fit and factory exact dimensions. Every detail of the factory k-member was incorporated, including all five brake line mounts. There's no "zip tying" of the brake lines with our k-member.
Build Specifications and Features:
- 1.50" x .120" wall DOM tubing - formed one piece front hoop

- All a-arm mounts are gusseted front and rear for side load strength. The slots have been lengthened to provide more a-arm adjustment over the stock k-member. Recessed passenger's side rear a-arm mount to provide clearance for long tube headers. Rear a-arm mount boxes are offset bent just like the factory k-member for factory exact fit and finish
- CNC laser cut and formed reinforced 3/16" steel rack mounts
- Welded in a special built rotary jig to insure an exact fit and allow for precision welds entirely in the flat position
- Includes (6) new 12mm Grade 10.9 k-member mounting bolts and heavy flat washers
- Includes (8) new flanged head motor mount bolts and flanged head steel lock nuts
- Includes all five brake line mounts and new brake line mounting tab bolts and nuts
- LSx motor mount pads allow for the installation of any LSx based engine (LS1, LS2, LS3, LS6, LS7, etc.)
- Durable and brilliant powder coated finish in your choice of the above colors
K-members are available with no motor mount pads for those who will be using a front motor plate, or with motor mount pads that will allow installation of the factory LS1 motor mount bushing stands or aftermarket motor mount set-ups such as our lightweight solid motor mounts (click here) or our lightweight LSX motor mount bushing stands (click here).
Note: If you will be using any block mounted motor mounts then you must get the motor mount pads installed on the k-member. The motor mount pads are what the block mounted motor mounts bolt fast to
on the k-member.
K-members can be set up for the factory steering rack or for mounting a Spohn Pinto manual rack kit. If you will be installing our manual rack kit choose this option and the k-member will come with the additional required rack mount installed (shown installed in picture above).
4130N Upgrade: The ultimate in bullet-proof lightweight strength, 4130N chrome moly tubing construction! Same as above, but constructed from 1.50" x .083" and 1.25" x .095" 4130N chrome moly tubing.
