Re: [DML] Heninger LCA Tested and Proven History



You couldn't be more incorrect if you tried -- I am one of the most vocal advocates of Byrnes arms. They run multiple laps around cheap folded low grade thin gauge OEM LCA's. I've got them on both my cars.

Combined with Ed's outriggers, Byrne's arms come very close to the kind of suspension these stupid little cars should have been built with in the first place.

My favorite comment from an owner who test drove my car at FFT'11: "it feels like a modern car now."

Those of you stubbornly hanging on to your cheap folded low grade thin gauge OEM LCA's don't know what you're missing. It's like trying to describe a juicy freshly cooked streak to people who only know left over end of the day at closing time McDonald's hamburgers. 

Remember: While Byrne's arms are indeed indestructible, they do need a set of Ed's outriggers to very closely approximate lower wishbones:

It's a 1-2 knockout combo.

Note also that Byrne's arms are the only replacement LCA's currently available. If your cheap folded low grade thin gauge OEM LCA's commit suicide, you're either going to buy a pair of Byrne's, or you're going to walk.

I think if properly designed (to make sure there is tolerance for the ARB arc of travel), it would be a huge improvement to the front suspension design.  Maybe even make a new ARB without the stop/nut so it can "float" in the LCA bushing (sounds risky, but with proper design/testing.....)?
