Flattened front leaf spring
« on: April 18, 2017, 10:37:46 AM »
I have a flattened front leaf spring for sale, I had it on my BIS but it was too low for daily use, what with the wife wanting to use the car as well. I paid £70 for it posted, it can be yours for £50 posted. It has been fitted, driven on once, and removed so is in very good condition!

Pictures to follow.

I'm interested in this, don't use mine daily... it's still usable though is it? It'll want rear shocks and come camber spaces fitting too ye?

Hi sorry for the slow reply, yes it's still usable. I don't have great roads around me and was running the standard front shocks so it was a bit crashy, but sort the shocks out and you should be fine. Camber wise it wasn't bad, seemed slightly negative, but nothing aggressive to the eye (I didn't measure it though). The pictures in my thread here: http://club126uk.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=8115.75 is what it looked like on that leaf spring. To sort the camber out if it ends up being too agro, some washers behind the top wishbone should sort it (though it's a little pikey).

if you are putting it on a bis you can use aircooled rears they work well with a lowered spring.
one resprayed and another arrives- double trouble BIS style!!

Thanks but It's for an air cooled. I think I'll do that anyway. The shocks need replacing so may as well have some fun at the same time!

to be honest the front end is the same i guess for an aircooled - i used air cooled shocks on my bis with a reverse eye spring with one leaf out and it was all good.
