Two questions, does anyone have the Aeon part # for their rubber springs used on the Elan?
Second question, where can I buy the aluminium bump stop risers or does anyone have a drawing that I can use to have them made?

I believe Timbren in your Neighbourhood was the original supplier.

KYB sells some for 82-86 Porsche 924 944 that are very similar. But, the ones I have for a Porsche from YKB 10+ years ago are much more soft than the newer ones. White, and I didnt put a scale on them to see compression to be able to compare it to original or old.

CJ etc I believe state that the poly bushings from TTR etc are too rigid.

Find out where the limits are, and start from there

Yes Timbren are near me in Ontario, their website has a full list of the double springs with different spring rates. I was hoping that someone knew the correct part #?
