Comfort spheres. Yet another question.

Post by Philip Chidlow »

Hi, my TZD is fine over most roads - if anything a little firmly sporting for a non-16v BX - but the benefits of having a hydropneumatic Citroen are less obvious on the atrocious roads around town - and even on roads such as the A12. I find myself wanting a softer more comfortable ride for day to day use.

Where do I get comfort spheres for the BX from? Or would spheres specified for a 16 petrol, maybe, be more suitable? Any helpful advice or experience to share, chaps?

Ah, excellent. I've had a new Accumulator sphere recently: any reason to change that too?

These OK for estates? I never carry any weight in it. Do they just have larger holes in them?
