Re: [DML] Re: Front Suspension Compliance

I don't remember seeing anyone saying Ed's brackets were bad.

At some point a few months ago, I mentioned that if all LCA flexibility forward/aft was removed it may be a problem because the end of the ARB travels in an arc.  This is something that was posted to DMCTalk and credited to Mike Loasby.  It was a CONCERN, that does not mean I think ARB mounts will fail on cars with Ed's brackets.

Although Martin has offered some alternatives to Ed's solution, and talks about designing his own, I don't think he has predicted any failures either.

The so-called "attacks" are being fabricated.  They do not exist.
