So although I am very early in my 67 MKII restoration, I need to make a decision on whether to try and keep the hydrolastic suspension or not. I need to get a new rear subframe to make sure it fits all the body panel replacement I am doing.
I understand the uniqueness and the nostalgia of the Hydrolastic suspension but then I think of what will I do if a bladder fails down the road. I understand they are not easy to find anymore. It may be a huge headache to go in that direction. I haven't even found really any technical articles or youtube videos dealing with the system and pressurizing it at home and all that. I am not even certain the bladders are okay, but I was told they are.
Then there is the performance aspect to consider. I am not sure what system is better in this regard. I want the car to be fum to drive and feel like it is stuck to the road.
So what would you do?
