You need to unbolt the engine as it bolts to it, and all your front suspension also hangs off it, will take a couple hours, personally I think its a case of if you have to ask, might be a big ask

i somehow think you may have the wrong name.

A kframe is the big black crossmember on shich most of your front suspension and engine sit on.

get underneath the car and have a look its got 3 x's on it from memory.

so as long as your car is at least rolling it should have this already as a factory item.

do you mean swaybar or strut brace or bash plate or something else maybe??

also its a bitch. you'll need to jack the body and lift and support the weight of the engine. youll need to unbolt the power steering rack and front suspension struts so you'll be looking at a full alignment by the time its back together aswell.
