Can the k frame move and affect alignment?
« on: June 26, 2020 - 03:19:24 PM »
We have a 70 challenger that we are having alignment issues. All the parts are good tie rods joints etc. we can get it into spec but its maxed out one way.  Can the k member be out of wack and cause this alignment issue?

Yes. It can move and cause either camber issues or caster issues. Not toe alignment though. What issues are you having?

Your alignment shop should be able to check the thrust angle which should give you an idea as to where any issue could be in terms of the K frame or control arms being bent.
