    Default Anyone purchased sphere's lately ??

    Hi Guys,

    I need to buy a pair of hydractive front Xantia spheres. Anyone know cheap sphere suppliers out here ?? I imagine postage would be expensive from Andyspares

    I've just changed the ATF to Transmax M ... And decided to re-check the front spheres as it's firm (but not harsh) in the front. H/A sphere, 70bar (75bar spec), front left 45bar (45bar spec), front right ..... 16bar and blowing tiny bubbles of LHM out

    I've fitted a pair of CX spheres to it that are down to about 40bar, it'll surely be nice 'n' soft until I can get some new H/A front spheres in.

    seeya,
    Shane L.

    I think I was quoted 65 UK pounds to get a set over for the BX (freight only, plus 20 quid a pop for the spheres) which was still much cheaper than dealing with the local Glenrowan Hotel gang but I found our old mate Martin Bray was as reasonable as any and he sometimes has regassed hydractives at a reasonable price.
    Have you tried any of the usual suspects? Caravelle and Wongy at Auto France.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Nah haven't tried anyone locally yet. Would you believe the front sphere have never been touched in the cars life (twin diaphram spheres). They both at full spec last I check (45bar) at 10years of age So the twin diaphram spheres certainly seem to last.

    The dead one not a real squirter, just tiny bubbles of LHM come from it

    (PS: 20quid each for postage )
