That looks rather familiar Richard !! I do not know how alike Flaminia and Aurelia rear suspensions are, but there appear to be a lot of similarities from what I can see in your 2 photos.

Good luck with it, I found cutting the new interleaving was a pain and if you are going for new wheel bearings you should prepare yourself for a possible battle royal !!!

Please keep posting with lots of photos,

The tired flattened leaves compared with the spares.the shackles have all been released on both springs .so quite a difference!

Great work Fridders! No hanging about with you there - flattened springs no sooner said than out and mended! I'd try the new springs but keep the longest ones from both old ones so you have equal springing. Isn't it amazing how 50-year old cars come apart so easily when they are designed manufactured and assembled to such high standards. Apparently that spring broke when the guy I bought it from was removing the rear suspension and transaxle for me in one assembly. Anyhow the car they came from is pictured here and you can see it sits nicely ...

So what happened to the rest of that "ripe for restoration" car I wonder? "No sooner said than done" equals "more time than money"! Anyhow I have re assembled one spring re using the original uppermost leaf and have added an extra  middle leaf(5th from bottom).I have re used the interleaving as where possible  this is a preservation  rather than a restoration job.However I have been able to select longer than usual lengths from the surplus which I have trimmed to correct size thus removing the worn through areas.richard

Moving forward in particular was the rear spring shackle which attaches to the bodyshell. It became overcentre forward of its axis once the refitted spring had the tension removed (when the jack supporting the spring was lowered).The solution turned out to be a wooden block placed between the rear of the spring and the bodyshell to stop this happening again.Anyhow one side completed with a resulting 25mm increase in rear ride height.

Ah yes - not an uncommon problem or solution .... http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4538.15

In danger of repeating something elsewhere, on Fulvia you MUST set the silent blocks with the spring under load (80mm top of spring to bump stop) which can only be done by putting a Falaminia transaxle or equivelent in the boot before tightening up the shackles. The design is to hold the inner of the silent block hard against the shackles and of course the outer is held by the spring. Failing to do this runs the risk of tearing the silent block on max extension of suspension.

Important to a lively Fulvia but I dont know how important to a Flaminia or indeed if the design principles were the same (I suspect they would be). However this setting for the Fulvia gets the correct ride height as well!!
