Re: [DML] Upgraded Front Suspension

Ed Uding's outriggers were designed by one DeLorean Motor Company franchise, and are sold stateside by another DeLorean Motor Company franchise. Can we assume they are a DeLorean Motor Company approved product?

Does anyone know how much more wiggly an OEM LCA is with Ed's outriggers than one of Byrne's arms?
