Coilover setup on Mogvette

Here is a photo shamelessly stolen from the www.emog.com.

It shows the reinforcement bracket for the upper damper mounting on the stock hoop. The rest of the setup is non-standard.

It looks like a complicated modification. pale Presumably there are no Coil Springs with this one Harald?

I can see what Cerealsurfer was saying about the angles and stresses on the Damper Rods

Ehhh?
The coil spring is the red bit Frank.

This 'solution' does not look 'elegant'.
I think I'll stick to my old cart springs - somtimes simple is best laugh2

This is all very interesting but still confusing to lil ole me.
cart springs now you see me now you dont?
coils, you defiantly see me, but where have the leafs gone?
and how much rebound can one get in such a small, short stroke?
I'm think that the old leaf's are looking better by the post
Peter


If you are doing nothing, how do you know when you are finished?

Sorry Peter - cart springs = nickname for leaf springs.

BTW, was doing a bit on RTA on Saturday and I have approx 7 - 8 cm clearance from top of diff to the access panel cross-brace strut (it has a clear mark from the top of the diff!).

Clearance under axle to top of chassis rail looks to be a couple of centimetres (didn't measure it from above) - with vehicle empty and probably not a great deal more with my 19 stone in the driver's seat...

Cheers,

Graham,
mine also was similar to yours (top to diff top measurements) and also the lower one is about the same to 30 mm. what worries me is that for the diff to hit the top board, the spring has to go into massive reverse deflection? surly springs are made to support the weight and defiantly not go in reverse? idea

I'll probably be out in the garage at the weekend, I'll take a closer look at the spring angle / curvature. Doesn't sound right that they deflect so far as to curve in the opposite direction...

Cheers,
