BMR K-Member Question

I have a Saleen SC and might have an opportunity to pick-up a BMR K-Member for a discount. The discount applies whether it is the BMR K-Member with the 1/2" drop or the one without the drop.

My question is are there any issues involved (other than probably needing an alignment) that I would need to be aware of if I went with the BMR K-Member which drops the motor 1/2" vs the normal BMR K-Member - and does anyone have any pics of theirs installed.

Mines the 1/2" drop. I did a TKO trans swap at the same time so I really didn't notice anything. There are pictures of mine installed in my gallery.

10/05gt - nice garage! Thanks for the pics. Did you notice any appreciable noise and vibration increase versus the stock K-member?

Thanks! It's my toybox. LOL. Yes it does pic up more road noise but I did so many other mods it is hard to say how much is from the K member. I also used the BMR motor mounts and they are a lot more solid than the OEM or any aftermarket ones. I really like the extra room under the engine for oil cooler and remote filter lines.
