New to air suspention and need advice
I need some advice and knowlegde regarding air Bag suspention.
Firstly I live in New Zealand, and as far as the Air suspention scene here goes, there pretty much isnt one. Hence why i am after your help with a few matters.
I am planning on fitting air bag suspention to my new project (dont laugh), a Singer Vogue Station wagon. The rear of the car I feel I Have sorted out, by using a bigger diff and a four link setup, which should work well with the air bag setup. The real problems I have are with the front suspention. At themoment it uses a very Britsh style double wishbone setup, and would like to change this in favour for a more well setup front.
The inner guards are going to be cut out of the engin bay, so that the car can go low. I had origanly thought of using Macpherson struts out of a Later Japenesse car, but I have a few thoughts about this. One is that with the air bags, do the move much?? What I mean by this is, if I replace the spring out of the strut with an air bag, will the strut flex forward and back at the air bag? Would you suggest maybe using a front setup out of a toyota hilux? I presume that a wishbone setup would be best, as I there for wouldnt have to make custom mounting point for the Macpherson strut?
Anyway, any help would be great, as I am very newto this, and it is hardto find good advice in this country.
