lol! yes, but its not really rocket science to put together a suspension - just lots of math and geometry, most beyond me as wellLinear movement but progressive springing via the tender springs.
Yeah, I don't know how it will work either. I think most of the magic is in the bespoke dampers.
The Elan doesn't have a rear ARB as standard so we are not removing anything from this end.
The proof will be in the pudding. This amount of modification to a road legal Elan has not been done before, as far as I am aware, so we are in uncharted waters and may hit a few submerged rocks
the tender spring with just give you soft before harder, and then valving the damper to do work in those positions.... but the actually wheel to damper rate is consistent. (i suspect you have about .8 motion rate now... but thats a wild guess imagining geometry from the pics)
all just a 6 of one, 1/2 dozen of another ways to skin a kitten. changing the motion ratio would/could radically change your damper valving - particularly if its valved to match the progressive spring positions. i "think" i prefer bump stop over droop limiters... still playing around with that...
well it looks super cool and best of luck and can't wait to see it rolling!! keep it up!
and i would keep an eye on the pushrods and upper arm, that nothing is rubbing under high loads.
