Re: [DML] Re: Front Suspension Compliance



Wrong, those pieces are to spread the load of the forward moment generated by the ARB and applied to the frame extension under braking and when you hit a bump. Good thing Lotus know more about engineering than you.

Those are custom recall brackets. The factory recall brackets transfer upward swaybar forces from a flat piece of 16 gauge low carbon steel (more genius Lotus engineering) to one vertical piece of 16 gauge low carbon steel. My brackets accomplish the same thing, albeit to *TWO* vertical pieces of 16 gauge low carbon steel -- and to a 1/8" thick aluminum I beam (the so called "Heath Robinson" modification that actually makes my crumple extension significantly stronger in the vertical plane than a stock vehicle -- another reason my car handles so well).
