Re: [DML] Pearce Design Correction

Marc and others:

Several reasons were presented when we considered making a retrofit  
kit for the trailing arm mount point.  These include condition of the  
frame, installation requirements, and modifications to existing  
trailing arms.  Far and away, the factor that stopped development of  
a retrofit kit was the construction of the original frame.  In order  
to install a retrofit kit based on our design, the U-shaped channel,  
which holds the original TA bolt, would have to be removed.   
Unfortunately, this U-shaped channel not only holds the original TA  
setup, it also provides significant strength to the frame.

I'm not saying that a useful retrofit kit could not be designed to  
accommodate the construction of the original frame, but given the  
costs and benefits of a retrofit kit versus the Stainless Steel frame  
replacement we again decided not to move forward.
