Thnks for the references SubaruPete. I have seen these video's before. Lpgo is again in the picture here. Don't know (yet) if he finished the construction both at the back and the front suspension. I will visit him in a while and can talk about his solution.The other video doesn't show anything of the applied construction, sadly enough.

The “Crazy Belgian “ has hollow centre airbags in place of the springs and longer pivots on the arms.
The build pictures were on the Snail Forum, but that is no more.
He may be nearby you.

The sub-frame that I fabricated was not upto the job.
The top rail was bending when under full load.
