We’re not afraid to show the specs for the experiment on the—this side I'm taking it apart and I've stuck this leaf back in. There’s a choice, that one or that one so I thought we try that one first because it wasn’t far off with what I wanted. I’ll try that one first. If that doesn’t work, then we’ll swap it for maybe that one.
I have a fear that the grease I've been using is making a massive difference to the wider springs being allowed to travel. This is copper grease, you could see the color. I've just brushed the spring both sides and same as the spot we try to jam in there. So I’m going to stick this one back in. I’m not taking the wheels off this side as you can see. I’ve just put an axle stand underneath the axle, drop the body which has lifted the axle off the spring. But also I'm that lucky so now we’re going to stick the strings, extra leaf in. Now let’s see that back on. We’re now back on the bottom. Not easy when you’re covered in grease and muck.
So now we’re back up to—so I wanted that back up, back together. I'm just going to pinch that out, lift the car so the axle comes back down onto the post, put the plate back on, put the sharp back on and then we’ll drop it on the floor again so that it looks like this tiny. I’ve worked out what the problem was and because these shocks obviously aren’t made for this car, they were bottoming out a foot wide—adjusted and I guess they made it that right, obviously not. What you can buy, there is a standard Mini shocks, what you can buy, they are a little bit more money is lowered shocks and they’re another 20 millimeters shorter which would probably make a difference than standards gas ones that are in or gas adjustables address what you want to do, gas adjustables on the front.
So that’s another thought, just make sure you have travel because the bump stop has got to hit the body before the shock absorber bottoms out, otherwise we’ll end up punching it for the floor. So I hope you listed that modification, stiffening up a bit and I still will have to buy second and third lowered shocks. So when you buy yours, spend the money, get the lowered ones.
