Thats correct, it would be difficult to get the springs right first time. Also, on the pre-85 the lower link twists as it goes up and down as its located front-rear by the ARB. So the lower shock

So it's looking like nothing will ever come of this? What a tragedy! I have a 1978 Esprit S2 that needs a suspension overhaul and I would have snapped up a Bilstein/Eibach setup in a second.

Has there been any update on this? If we could hold of the specs, could we not get some made etc?

Come on people this will not be made unless you sign up here. One thing I will guarantee is that a hell of a lot of you will not realise just how bad your suspension is untill you sit in an updated/renewed car. So if you are even thinking about it I would say do it the difference even in the later cars is remarkable and some of the cars are half the age of ours.

If you will definitely buy a set then add your name to the list.

I would put my name on but I am selling my car so I cannot commit to it.

Can you double check this. I know Louts have a new suspension set up for 85 on. My understanding was that 84 and earlier was the same as the S1 and S2
