[DML] Lowering the D (was: Front Stabilizer Bar)



I have Gradys front springs on my car to lower it a bit.  Will I need to adjust the stabilizer bar at all because of the different stance?  Just wondering.

Dave,

I might try that washer trick whenever I'm lucky enough to get another 
DeLorean.

My Tie Rod Ends were so worn it was difficult to keep the car straight and 
that was one of the first items I tackled. The car would shake violently at 
anything over 45 miles per hour so it was a bit frightening.

Once I put the new ones on and did the alignment the car rode like a dream 
with good clearance from the stabilizer. I had to replace the front tires 
also because of damage from lord knows how much driving with the tires 
rubbing.
