    I have my axles and flanges out right now myself. Where did you put the black silicone? I'm confused.

    You're very welcome. Where do you live / plan to keep the car? Are you in Florida?

    Most of us do our own wrenching, and it's not hard, but it seems like every job requires more tools. That...

    Welcome! You'll find a lot of smart long-time owners here. I don't think you should get too worried about future repairs right now if you are confident DMCFL is selling you a car that's been truly...

    Another vote for the delrin bushing here. I just inspected mine after about 15 years last weekend and it's still going strong. No big deal to realign the steering wheel. I just take it off (either...

    Steady progress on my suspension overhaul. I had bad brake pedal pulsation after installing my freshly-turned front rotors a couple weeks ago. I decided to do a full brake system rebuild at that...

    I too had big problems with those stupid 13mm bolts and nuts that hold the T/A bracket to the frame. I broke the head off the bolt on the passenger side on the front of the bracket. I got lucky and...

    Two days ago I removed my driver side trailing arm for restoration and to finally install my D/S Toby Tab I bought about 15 years ago. The bolt is incredibly stuck in the T/A so it's currently...

    Posting to this super-old thread only because I searched for it and referred to it while dealing with basically the same problem as OP. I had a bit different solution.

    For me, I had the...

    It's been a couple of weeks since my last update on here, so here goes -

    1) Front suspension is now completely reassembled but on my first drive I had quite a bit of brake pedal pulsation. I...

    Hard to re-tighten accurately since you can only get an actual wrench on it. Just tighten it bigly. No need to remove the outer axle nut.

    Something is seriously loose. Sounds like a wheel bearing or the trailing arm pivot. I'm hearing more of a clunking than a squeaking though.

    I had a squeaking sound at low speed and even with the...

    It's literally impossible to make the hole line up with the castle nuts. The New Castle nuts are within 0.2 mm equal measurement to original Castle nuts. I'd have to thread a castle nut at least two...

    Not much you can do unless you can get the car off the ground. You could try disconnecting the angle drive cable from the lambda counter and see if the square wire inside is spinning, but I imagine...

    One other thought. I found some other castle nuts at a hardware store that are a bit shallower and would almost certainly work. However I'm not sure about the quality of them - I don't think they...

    I was talking to someone else who has the same ball joints. He also said he was able to get the cotter pin in. I guess it's possible that it's not all the way inside the taper, I did have these...

    I also bought some Castle nuts and tried to put them on the lower ball joints. These are DPI LCA's with UK Amsteer ball joints pre-installed and they came with nylock nuts. There is absolutely no...

    Yep. Got the driver side off no problem so far. Haven't found any smoking guns yet.

    Thanks guys. I was having second thoughts about the ball joint nylocks last night as well. I am going to go pick up some new castle nuts and then drive the car up on ramps and check everything...

    Heh I did the same thing with my calipers. Both were marooned on the wrong side of the knuckle when I was done. Luckily I just disconnected the new ball joint from the wishbone, moved it to the...

    Did you do anything with your brakes when you did all that suspension work?

    I was smart enough to know I should do something about the discs because of course you're likely to wreck your...
  21. [Brakes] Brake pedal pulsation after replacing front suspension

    Pulsating brakes!

    Yesterday I installed my front suspension from the frame up. DPI Spec Suspension, coilovers, powder coated ARB, Superflex ARB bushings, SKF bearings, Amsteer upper and lower...

    Hi guys,

    Bumping this thread. I'm still looking for anyone who bought this complete package and did the install themselves. I have a few questions, specifically:

    1) the fitment of the...

    I message him on Facebook from time to time, he's very active in the DeLorean Technical Help group. Let me know if you want me to connect you with him if you can't do it yourself.

    Just another option, I bought this wrench-driven install tool for M5 rivnuts which works PRETTY well - about 90% of the rivnuts were installed no problem with it, however I'm not sure if it's the...

    Is there supposed to be some kind of seal or foam between the underbody and the black plastic cover? I can't tell if whatever residue there is came from the factory or if a PO did it.
