Dandy suspension revisited
Confession time – the planned work on the trailer was cancelled in favour of taking it out for a couple of nights!
A call to Indespension this morning has confirmed that the mounting bolts for the 500kg and 750kg suspension units are different:
Clearly not a like for like replacement.
Additionally after some clever trigonometry I have calculated that due to the longer suspension arm on the 750kg unit, were the unit to be mounted centred on the same beam as the 500kg unit the wheel centre would move back approximately 50mm – probably not desirable, although not a complete no-no?
Must admit to being undecided now as to the best course of action. Driving along this weekend with a close eye on the trailer confirmed to me that it does have an element of springyness, so am thinking that the only hassle is the ride height of the trailer… spacers or new units? (or just avoid the sleeping policemen) Watch this space.
