Re: [DML] Re: Re: Front Ride Height Intentions

Shannon - springs are pretty easy to make to any spec.  After all, they are just
wire wound around a form.  It's actually less expensive to make shorter 
springs than longer ones because of materials cost and cycle time on the
forming maching.

About the only way DeLorean could have saved money here would be to
buy surplus springs from another application.  This is not a good way to
source parts like this because once they run out, you will have to get springs
made to that spec.
