[DML] Machined lower control arms and Eibach setup



Hello group,
when I bought VIN #2678 it had already some nice lower control arms
installed in the front suspension. They look like machined or diecast.
You can see them in the album 

<http://autos.ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews/photos/browse/52c4>

I have heard that those arms had been produced in the 80s, when it
turned out that the original ones were not very reliable, but with no
other replacement parts available.
A year ago I changed to Eibach shocks and springs in front and rear
suspension. But the Eibach shocks did not fit at the front. They could
be installed, but they were rubbing inside the control arms when the
springs got pressed. The original arms seem to have more space around
the shocks. I also tried a set of Nissan shocks which are not so thick
as the Eibach shocks. But they are also rubbing at the arm.
Does someone on the list have some experience with these control arms
along with the Eibach springs ? I would prefer to keep the control
arms (because they really look reliable) and the Eibach springs (have
been quite expensive). Any hints about modifications that need to be
done to the lower control arms to be able to use at least "usual"
(Nissan) shocks would be very appreciated.

Thank's for your help.

Peter + VIN2678
