chassis to radius arm mount replacement

Looks like a DeLorean might be cheaper to fix.

106716 is the magic number.

I love it when some digging pays off!

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Arrived next day with free postage 😀deloreango!

I bought some familiar looking snubber washers while I was at it, and replaced both radius arm mounts so they are the same rubberyness (technical term?)

I would imagine the decent looking 40- year old one was ready to split in use too.

The rear suspension looks a lot like the esprit - but then it would as it was redesigned by Lotus/Colin Chapman - bodywork by giugiaro.

Looks like they started raiding the lotus parts bins to sort the dmc😁

Puts the boot on the other foot for a change.

I'll try to update the parts spreadsheet.

Great find! Looks like it should make a big difference compared to your original ones.
