Re: [DML] For the Record: Byrne's LCA's and Ed's Brackets



Do you even bother reading my posts before knee jerk disagreeing?

"I do think that they need to be installed as a set. Installing either without
the other is like making a sandwich without meat, or eating baloney without
bread. Together, Byrne's LCA's and Ed's brackets take the DeLorean driving
experience to places even JZD never imagined in his boldest fantasies."

I honestly think that if I said "the sky is blue," you would respond that it actually was a shade of turquoise just to be contrary.

As I have said from day one onwards, Byrne's arms *AND* Ed's outriggers go together as a set (Message #82558, quoted here in its entirety because Martin does not like rereading messages by numbers):

"I just drove from the NC/SC border to DC on my new front suspension: Byrne's
LCA's *AND* Ed's outriggers. The combined effect is nothing short of
revolutionary. This is the way these cars should have been built in the first
place. If people promise not to crash my car, I will let them test drive it at
DMA this weekend.

Anyone who has ever removed their sway bar knows how floppy OEM LCA's are (let's
be brutally honest -- they're unacceptably floppy even with the sway bar in
place). Even before my sway bar was reattached, the lower "wishbones" had
absolutely no fore/aft movement whatsoever.

Sheesh.

They are the closest thing to a lower wishbone currently on the market. In conjunction with Byrne's LCA's, they revolutionize the car. That is why I have them on both my cars. If I win Ken's raffle car, it will be getting Uding brackets as well.
