    K Members for all of our cars come in two flavours, one is for the slant 6, and the other is for the SBM. They are pretty much the same aside from the motor mount locations.

    OK
    Oh I think I remember what was the same; it was a one-size-fits-all, L-bars Right?

    AJ, according to the parts manuals – there are 4 different K-frames for all FMJ’s, two each /6 and 2 each small block - with a few minor differences between the years. The engine mounts are in different locations on the K-frames between engines. The other difference is Police vs. non-police.

    I have sat a police K-frame up against a non-police – and I can’t detect any differences between them. Maybe thicker or hidden welds – IDK. I didn’t weight them.

    My opinion: there are only two different K-frames (/6 and small block) – and factory parts book shows otherwise.
    The year of production - I hadn't seen any issues on interchangeability between the years.


    I was told by a Chrysler factory rep, the torsion bars are all the same – except between Left and Right. The differences are the bushings, with HD and police bushings being firmer rubber.
    With as many part numbers on the books on torsion bars – I wonder about that, but my measurements on several torsion bars, including police, have all came to same readings.

    I didn't know any of that, but had drawn similar conclusion from both internet chit-chat, and a small amount of experience.
    And I had confused same T-bars for same Ks. So thanks for clarification.
    As always, your eye for details is amazing
