    Alright guys -

    Word on the street is that my lca's are a bit rough but are rebuildable. Unfortunatley unless I want to go through Hervey it just wouldn't be cost effective to do so. So... I think I will be going new. I have narrowed my choices to the black Aluminum ones from deloreanclub.uk or the SS ones from DPI. What is everyone's opinions on those choices? They are both gorgeous. They both are engineered more stout than stock. what about warranty? black aluminum ones have a 12 month, where the SS one's have no warranty. hmmmm.....

    Life time on ours for welds etc. this doesn't cover physical damage. I.e. Towing improperly or hitting something.

I felt the condition of the original arms, pictured, was far too gone to clean up and reinstall especially while traveling highways to work. Whether it is DPI or DMCNW, I'd suggest replacement over originals either way. Pictured below this, is a picture of my current SS LCAs, although the picture is a little old.

    Is that dirt or rust starting in on the ss LCA's?

    My VIN:    905

    LCAs from Delorean eu

    I spent alot of time considering what LCAs to use on #905 when I refurbished the front suspension. I eventually purchased the heavier steel LCAs from DeLorean eu. They are made of thicker steel than the originals and boxed for strength too. They are called "Lower link, new production" and them come with ball joints and bushings installed. With the exchange rate they cost less than I was expecting and shipping was very fast. I would highly recommend these. See the pictures of the original next to the new production

    Neither. It's discoloration from the welds where the stainless got hot.
