    Aventador suspension Pics

    Here is the nice pics:

    Question: pushrod design and construction? using the same pushrod "lbs" springs as in the standard suspension? For example front suspension murice/ diablo approximately 350-450lbs for spring and pushrod type? I think make pushrod in my chassis.

    Thanks

    Bierhanzel,
    The spring rate COULD be the same but it depends on the ratio of push created by the lengths of the levers on the bellcrank. They are made different lengths on the Aventador on purpose. They balanced their system travel and stresses to suit their space and load requirements. If anyone wants to make a similar setup, be careful, this isn't for everybody. If you get the leverages wrong you can mess up everything.
    I like the way they made the front hydraulic lift. It is like they used two hydraulic clutch throw out bearings on the shocks and push on the coil over springs. Very clever.

    This article is great coverage of the suspension.

    Great pics now does anyone have the dims for a chassis? I know it is not the same but Dave Held has a rear suspension setup similar to this for the fiero chassis. Easy way to do a stretch!

    You can get that coil over suspension raising system. I don't remember who has it, but if I remember right it is about $2000. My car had air bag lifts on it, so when I upgraded to the wide held slalom suspension I kept the air bag lift

    Is it me or Am I missing something. Half of the car is practically plastic and I do realize that you do have to have some weight to keep it on the ground. But 3400lb is bit much
