Default about to remove the k member from the bottom...

so there are these "TABS" that look like they are attached to the kmember but its possible they may be apart of the a arms for alignment........which is it?

shitty. i thought i could get smart and rather than using a cart to support the k member, i could just use vehicle dollies under the 2 front wheels to move the cradle out from under.....but then i realized after cracking 2 bolts that the k was beginning to drop. nothing is preventing the k member from swinging downwards like i thought it would for some reason, so will be drilling into one of my dollies and bolting some wood to it to create my cart. doing this without a lift. surprisingly tho these 18 year old bolts weren't too bad.....id say takes about 75-90 ft pounds to crack.

What tabs are you referring to? How are you supporting the engine?

There are tabs which four of the six bolts for the k-member thread into.

From a few years ago when I removed the front suspension for powder coating.
