    Default wtb Front Spheres for BX

    I am after a pair of spheres to get me mobile. Any spheres from the front of a BX, CX or Xantia (non hydractive) would be suitable.

    No spheres but I've got a pump which looks in good condition.

    Location?

    I think I have some BX fronts around somewhere that were regassed in the last year. I'd have to hunt around for them though.

    Hmm,

    don't take this the wrong way but I suggest checking the valves on Xantia and CX spheres .... You may find they are different. One size certainly doesn't fit all.

    See the list here for valve/capacity/pressure details:

    Note: the dampening hole has a great impact on ride quality.

    I realise the damping is different but not different enough to make the car undriveable. I am about to initiate a project where having a variety if spheres would come in handy. For the mean time almost any sphere will do.

    Default BX front spheres

    I have 2 on a 16V I am wrecking.

    If you are prepared to come to Cammeray (next to Neutral Bay or North Sydney) and remove them yourself - I tried without success but you may have the right equipment or knowhow - you can have them for $40.00.

    A strap wrench or chisel will get them off. They'll be quite firm if there still the original 16valve spheres. They should unscrew quite easily once you have broken there initial hold.
