Front strut first fitting, seems to be ok?

The tie rod just clears the bottom of the strut.

Height of strut may require a dimple in the bonnet:(

Repositioned one of the front struts, all works ok for clearance and is softer.

But see pics of the subframe?? Its a bit of a mess, so have ordered some new steel, will attempt to design/fabricate a tidier frame:)

Have made a strut that has the spring working, irrespective of suspension height.
Parts required...

The top mount sits half way down inside the spring and the hydraulic ram is attached there.

First fit of revised suspension, it’s fits!.

Need to add hand-brake bracket and brackets for the battery box and exhaust.

Then (this time) will take it all apart to paint the whole front end properly.

Hi Lpgo,

Where have you been hiding.

Rear End.
Citroen C5 strut with 2cv rear springs coil over.

Front End.
Hydraulic ram 4ton with 2cv front springs , not really coil over as they are in “series” such that the springs always functions.

However at the front the top bar bends and is bent:) at some point in testing???, needs to be larger section and thicker wall.

I have been thinking (way back btw) about the mounting of airbags. Would be possible if I compare it with your construction, because they are much smaller. I hesitated because our technical safety controls by the authorities would disapprove it because not being original.
I do not know if the airbags (small because lightweight vehicle) would fit inside a spring box, and can be hided for the eye of the inspector :D :D
