... feels like a long time ago sitting in a fysics class at school - always sitting in th back near the window - half of the attention to the teacher up front, the other half outside staring at wildlife, the sky, wandering about things like your motorcycle ,car, women, holiday trips to far countries ... the old days. At sudden the teacher in front of you : whats your answer to my question about this torc issue ??
did you find it outside ?? guess not !! "better pay attention young man !" Yes master LPGO - I will ...

Theres no space to make longer brackets.. However I changed the position of the point where the Airsprings go to.. (can't explain in Englisch) I now have a sort of progressive suspension which seems to work fine..

Yesterday evening must have been a strange look for passers-by.. Me jumping on the back of my 2cv.... as if it was a trampoline.... but it works for me now.....


Heres a pic of the bracket mounting vs middlepoint of the arm....
Now I'm using solution B...

Yes you are right Ken.. But I am just discovering the power vs. suspension-travel of these shocks..

Normaly these shocks are used to lower cars and I want to "higher" it.. I think with 5cm to 8 cm less the driveshafts already cope with the job (think about the angle they make when making a sharp corner)

That's why I want to still lower it more having the rear discs about 5cm above the ground in lowest position. The travel will almost be the same but more appropriate...

But it looks cool doesn't it... 8-) 8-)


Hydraulic rear hubs and do away with the driveshafts?

Looks great. Just what you need for fording the Dutch dykes!

Air-ride my front end today... Works to good, suspension is very stiff, 4 shocks for a Us truck is to much for a 2cv :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
