Re: [DML] My Suspension is better than Bill's

The bushings help to soften the "blows" of bad roads and bumps.
While braking lateral forces move the LCA backwards.
With bad bushings that move will be beyond an acceptable range.
With good bushings the lateral movement will still be too much.

The brackets (braces) will help keep the lateral movement within an acceptable range.
Should the brackets keep the LCA too stiff (no lateral movement) there is risk of tearing/ripping apart the connections to the frame.
This frame has not been designed for LCA's that are of the A type.

The other design Ed is going to test (using a rear LCA and a mounting cage behind and directly to the shock tower) is expected to keep the standard LCA's lateral movement within an even more acceptable travel.

The better the LCA keeps its position and lateral travel to a minimum, the better the car can handle bad roads, bumps and emergency braking without breaking out of control (as with the standard system often happens).

Hope this helps understanding the ways and considerations behind this product.
