Just a thought but could you use a spring from an old rear bike shock and a valve spring or mobility scooter type of spring for the lower one.

You have me looking on ebay!

Yes, even just a piece of tube on it's own as long as it takes up the slack above the spring.

I know what you mean. The washer idea was for the tube to bear on to stop the tube jamming in the spring, but I guess wider tube would do that anyway

As suggested by Jim T, I obtained a motorcycle spring, made a couple of collars and fitted it in my sliding pillar. Unfortunately it still needs a bit more stiffening, not because of bounce (of which there is little) but because the car sits 1/2" too low at the front, so I reckon I will slide the previous spring down inside it.

Came across this in an album which I have custody of
We must avoid torturing our brains with false problems, it occupies but it can annoy. In jest!

That is brilliant. Thanks Rhys. Is that a young Mike Bullet?

All it says is Nurburgring 197? (can't read the last digit clearly.)
