I have a qa1 k member in my mustang and was thinking of switching to a upr was told by upr that it weights 18lbs and the qa1 weights 36lbs. if this is the case ill switch but kinda calling bs as there isnt many bares in a k member and dont fell that going from a mild steel qa1 to a chromoly upr would be that much of a difference like they say it is. Im willing to pull mine out and weight it but would like to save myself the trouble as the car is complete, if someone already knows what the weight of the qa1 is. thanks for any input, mike

just for the record replaced my qa1 k member with a upr k member. qa1 weights 25.5 pounds upr weights 18 pounds. qa1 a arms weight 6 pounds each upr 5 pounds each( but are 1 inch shorter to fit new brakes). also put aerospace brakes and aluminum radiator in car and lost a total of 59 pounds off the noise.

The QA1 K-frame is heavy. I can't remember what exactly they weighed but I took off the QA1 k-frame and put on a chrome-moly one from Autofab and weighed both in between and I know the Autofab one was 15 lbs. lighter than the QA1 k-frame.

I know the thread title is UPR vs QA1, but I figured someone else might want to know what the Team Z stuff weighs. I just weighed my chromoly (with motor mount perches) k-member right at 17lbs. The heim-end 1" shortened A-arms are at 10lb for the pair. I'll be taking off a mild steel QA1 this weekend and will post the results.
