Re: [DML] Upgraded Front Suspension



The ARB rotates within the mounting bushings as well as twisting to transfer 
load.  The compliance in the mounting bushings and bushes at the ends of the ARB 
at the LCA provides the range of motion requires to protect the mounts.

How did Lotus deal with the arc of the ARB?  I realize Bill (and others) have 
said the ARB is flexible enough to move with the arc and not break the mounts-  
but I still have my doubts about that.

Seeing someone like Kayo beat the crap out of this setup on NYC streets would 
probably be a good test.  :)
