[DML] Re: Upgraded Front Suspension



In this instance, Ed Uding and Byrne Heninger did the experimenting and fiddling. All I did was put 1,000 coats of paint on their ready made products, then bolt them up (as previously mentioned, I did alter the Uding bracket to shock tower interface slightly, which required longer through bolts).

And I flipped the sway bar bushings around when bolting it back up.

Byrne's ball joints don't have grease fittings, so I added those.

I also overlaid larger OD washers over Ed's inset bushing washers (again, requiring slightly longer through bolts).

Hardly the height of fiddling.

I guess we are still in an experimentation phase (although an owner in Michigan has been running the same combo for a year already, albeit with fewer miles than I typically travel).

Many things that "work" don't work well or for long or need constant attention and fiddling. Most people either won't do any of their own work or when they do their own work don't want to "experiment" with something that is not "tried and true" and has a good history of working with a minimum of fiddling. In your particular case everyone knows how you love to experiment and fiddle with your car. Not every mod you do is for everyone else. That said, keep on experimenting, it is good that someone will, that is how the car is improved. Strictly speaking the heading should be "Modified Front Suspension", not necessarily "Upgraded". That has yet to be proven.
