dsraven, I installed a Volare K-member under my truck about 8 years ago. I really like the way it sits, rides and handles. You can adjust the ride height by turning the torsion bars. All you do is cut about a 2" notch on each frame rail and slide the K-member under. Then measure, measure, tack it, then measure again and again. Box your frame and build motor mounts. I left the original cross-member that the bell housing bolts to. I bought a 1980 Volare for $150.00 as a donor car. the pictures are blurry but you can make out what I did. I've had my truck 32 years!
