New! When choosing Rear Lower Control Arms for your 1979-04 Mustang you will find a wider selection available from MM than anywhere else. MM's new Sport Series RLCAs offer improved performance for street-driven Mustangs at a budget price. MM's new Drag Race Adjustable Rear Lower Control Arms for Mustangs with Big Power are rated at 1,000 rwhp, and provide ride height adjustability to tune for the optimum launch. These two new series join MM's Heavy-Duty, Extreme-Duty, and Road Race control arms.
New! MM Caster Camber Plates for the 2015 S550 Mustang are now in stock. This new design from Maximum Motorsports (the inventor of double-adjustable caster/camber plates for Mustangs in 1993), gives owners of 2015 Mustangs the ability to easily correct the excessive front camber resulting from the installation of lowering springs.
Allows swapping one of the listed engines into a 1979-1995 Mustang chassis. This hybrid k-member bolts into a 1979-1995 Mustang chassis, but has the engine mounting pads and steering rack location to allow fitment of a 4.6L/5.4L modular, 3.8L V6, 5.0L Coyote, or LSX engine.
Get more front grip and dramatically improve the handling of your Mustang with an MM tubular K-member. At 39 lb, the MM K-member is 22% lighter than the OEM K-member, and yet it's the strongest, stiffest, and most durable K-member available. Fits these engines: 4.6L modular, 2V and 4V; 5.4L modular, 3.8L V6, 5.0 Coyote, LSX.
Better by design MM's Engineering Team optimized the suspension geometry to increase cornering grip and produce a better-handling Mustang. A design goal was to maximize stiffness, as that keeps the suspension geometry stable when cornering. The added stiffness makes the handling more precise and increases stability under braking.
Like the OEM K-member, MM K-members are designed and built to last for the life of your Mustang. While most aftermarket K-members focus on shedding weight, our design priorities led us to create advanced cross-bracing and triangulation of tube intersections to ensure the strength and durability needed for this mission-critical part. We use thicker-gauge metal and larger tube sizes than other companies to ensure the MM K-member has the strength to handle drag race launches and wheel stands, road race use, and of course the rigors of daily street driving.

Fore and Aft Wheel Location The fore-aft location of your Mustang's front tires may change after installation of an MM K-member and Front Control Arms. How much it changes depends on the specific combination of parts you install. Scroll down to see images showing the results of several combinations of parts installed on SN95 Mustangs.
Required Modifications 1979-1993 Mustang Any combination of K-member and front control arms that moves the front tire location forward will often require some modifications. How much modification depends on the tire size, wheel offset, and how far forward the tire goes. In general, likely modifications include trimming the plastic fender extensions, remounting the plastic inner fender liner, and adding a spreader bar to the fender under the extension.
1994-1995 Mustang All combinations of MM K-members and MM Front Control Arms move the front tire location forward. Some may require slight modifications; how much depends on the tire size, wheel offset, and how far forward the tire goes. In general, 0.75" rarely requires any modifications unless an uncommonly large tire/wheel package is installed. 1.5" of movement may require modifications to the plastic inner fender liner, and trimming the end of the bumper fascia inside the wheel well.
For more information about these modifications, email the MM Tech Department from the Contact Us page. Be sure to include the part numbers of the K-member and front control arms you will use, as well as the year, model, and sub-model of your car.
