[DML] Re: Pearce Design Correction



Marc and others,

With so many issues of OEM frame tolerances and the many
more issues of OEM frame rust, I do not think that PDC
would want to go down the route of trying to make a kit
that would work on OEM frames, IF the frame was within
tolerances and IF the frame was in very good, rust free
condition and IF the OEM trailing arms are also rust free.

Of course, proper installation would be critical to correct
operation and there are way too many IF's to insure that all
these conditions have been met.  The one an only retrofit to
use stock trailing arms was done on Bryan's proto SS frame.

However, if there is enough interest, maybe PDC can build a
more cost effective, powder-coated steel frame with all the
PDC improvements, for those who are unwilling or unable to
"pull the trigger" and go with the full, PDC SS frame setup.

With steel surcharges still at record levels, this may be
something that can be explored for the future.

Later,
Rich W.
