This guy in NZ has designed a unique suspension system, tested on a Leone sedan. Is used for off-road racing - looks impressive when compared to the ride/handling characteristics of the sotck suspension. Design is a self-regulating fully pneumatic suspension, using custom lathed parts. Videos below.

 

The suspension:

And comparison with conventional:

 

See his channel and FB for more. https://www.facebook...ar/292602420089

I'm not the guy, just found this and thought it cool, kinda like the guy in NZ who made DOHC EA82 heads for a light aircraft.

 

Enjoy, discuss and I hope I posted in the correct section (mods, feel free to move).

No idea, you could try and get ahold of the guy through his youTube/fb and get the plans to make yourself a set. I'd imagine shipping from nz= expensive.
