    Anyone here have the DeLoreanGo lower control D-Arm?

    Going ahead and replacing my lower control arms and was looking to purchase DeLorean Go's LCA's (D-Arm set)

    https://www.deloreango.com/en/alumin...trol-arms.html

    Anyone have these installed? If so, thoughts on them? Also, going with these, would it still be recommended to get a lower arm support kit?

    Thanks!!!

    I have just fitted them to my car. They are very nicely done. A lot chunkier and way more solid than the original ones.
    I fitted the DPI supports to them but it is personal preference if you want to do that.
    Cheers,

    Any LCA benefits from the support braces since no one has bothered to design a LCA that is a different shape than stock.

    I have fitted them both to my own car and another. They are very well made and a perfect fit, I also fitted Ed's S/Steel lower arm support kit to mine as well. I cant report back on handling as yet as I have done less than 5 miles since. I do know from fitting the support kit to a friends car he reports it's made a terrific difference to handling (fitted at the same time as refurb'd top arms/springs/ball joints etc). The only small issue I had was it's harder to fit the lower shock mountings, however this will depend on the types of shocks/dampers fitted. I have Pro-Tech ones fitted and they are fiddly to install due to separate bushings etc.

    Funny, the text says made from 6082 in one place and 6061 in another. I would assume it's 6061-T6. Nice looking stuff.

    I installed DPI's Aluminum LCA last year. Very similar, only difference is I got the ones without the spring cup since I also installed DPI's coil-overs. Very happy with them. They are a lot beefier than stock.

    Billet arms & DGo braces installed. As other have stated these are a MUST for any owner that uses their car. Night and day difference in road holding and steering feel not to mention peace of mind knowing you won't suffer a broken LCA. Also replaced steering rack bushings, sway bar bushings, steering shaft bushing with poly units and added stainless sway bar brackets.

    I had the Delorean Go billet Lower arm for 3 years now . The biggest difference is that the ride quality is harsh . maybe it also has to do with the Poly bushing and Euro spec lower Spring.

    And until you crash the car , the Billet arm will become the strongest point of the whole car , and instead of crushing the lower arm at side impact, the Front strut of frame will bend . (maybe because I have Front strut tower ,that help reduce some damage . ) the total of the side impact damage are the wheel , front hub knuckle , tie rod , upper control arm, and slightly bent strut tower , but the Billet lower arm is totally Fine.

    My ride quality improved with the billet LCA not to mention eliminating the wander at high speeds. Eibach springs and DMC shocks. (poly bushings as stated)
