Adjustments to the K- Member

Does anyone know after loosening the four bolts that attach the K-member to the frame (unibody) is it possible to adjust or shift the position of the K-member? I can't tell by looking if the bolts just secure the k-memeber to the frame or if they offer some angle adjustablity too. The drivers side wheel only has an 1-1/2" clearance to the rear wheel well while the drivers side is 3-1/4" away. Had the car aligned and it drives straight.

2"??? If there is 2" of difference side to side and the alignment guy didn't notice something was terribly wrong then he needs to find a new line of work.

I'd be looking for a bent frame/unibody with that large of a difference. Noting else can account for this. No, the k-member is not adjustible and even if you could coax out a small adjustment, there is no way 2" would be possible.

Also, look for a bent control arm.
