Late last summer I installed full set of new Swedish Lesj÷fors progressive rate springs and a set of Koni "Classic" hydraulic shock absorbers to replace the old worn out shocks and springs. Adjusting the shocks for a balance of a decent ride and excellent handling even when pushed hard in cornering has been achieved, and the chassis now works very well at both ends of the spectrum.

These springs tend to settle in and sag quicker than a linear spring, but I am working on a way to regain lost ride height when they do.

This winter the front end will be getting new ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends, and an alignment.
