Re: [DML] Machined lower control arms and Eibach setup



Yes - in the original message. That's why I said what I did. It 
doesn't sound like a big deal - just increase the size of the opening 
some. I got the impression that what ever shock was on to start with 
was working fine and without damage. Best check the travel then. The 
shock is probably going "over center" (or more over-center) at the 
end of the travel.
