Re: [DML] Re: Front Suspension Compliance



1) Nonsense, the LCA is forced into an arc by the ARB. We're talking about movements in two orthogonal planes here, I appreciate this is a bit too much to understand.
2) Whatever makes you happy
3) In other words, not a true wishbone. An improvement, sure, but if a job's worth doing...

Subject: [DML] Re: Front Suspension Compliance

I continue to maintain, as I have since the brackets (and arms) first went on my car:
1) the sway bar is bendy as can be. It easily absorbs the LCA's arc of travel
2) by turning the mounting bushings around backwards, my swaybar also presses into an empty space rather than solid rubber

This is a new one, based upon complaints that Ed's brackets are mounted with bushings:
3) the LCA's are still minimally complaint fore/aft (the suspension can not lock itself up)

I checked my mounts last week. They still look pretty good to me -- how do they look to you?
