Re: [DML] Re: Eibach springs/shock set



I can add something to this discussion.

For years now, the DeLorean Owners Club over here has been supplying 
lowered front springs. The quaity control is good as with any spring 
manufacturer and they are all tested before shipping to show the same 
elasticity.

I have a set of Grady's shocks on my car, and a set of these springs on 
the front. My car is forever getting comments on its low front end as 
it's really low without the front wheel obviously disappearing into the 
wheel arch. I've tracked down this photo - sorry that the front end's 
obscured a bit, but I think you can see how level the car is. I have the 
rear set to the lowest "ring" on the shock.

The DOC springs have been known to produce different results on 
different cars too.

Remember the main suspension bolts must be torqued with the weight of 
the car on them.

I am not happy with Grady's shocks from a handling point of view. I 
enjoy spirited country-lane driving although they give a fantastic ride 
on the motorway and at speed, I will be taking them off in the near 
future. Anyone want to make me an offer? They have approx 8000 miles on 
them since I bought them in Memphis.
