Re: [DML] Replacing lower ball joints

The collars are not a thing you should consider getting.. you have to get 
them! No question about it. The lower control arm is designed in such a way 
that this collar in necessary to avoid disaster. This would be another 
recall for a DeLorean is the factory had remained in business a little 
The installation is easy. Just remove the old ball joint, slip the collar on 
(usually a couple of taps with a hammer will help) and reinstall a new 
joint. That's it.
Check if your car has the collars in place and if not just order them from 
Rob. Small price to pay for a small part that does a LOT.
Good luck
