    The 205 already has indipendent rear suspenion. This car has the ability to fit coilover rather than the standard torsion bars and shocks.

    I'm having trouble seeing what benefit could be gained by towers rather than the original torsion spring set-up, particularly as it is so easy to adjust spring tension with the original design...

    I think this car ( look to be anyway ) made by Sandy brown. When complete by Sandy these car run Coilovers at the rear with NO Tortion bars and NO arb. Apparently a very good modification although an expensive one. If you look on the 205 gtidrivers site Sarty Evo 2 has a similar chassis and was a beast

    Probably allows you to tune the rear suspension more easily and precisly?? Also the supension tower is placed right above the original bump stop on the trailing arm, wouldnt this change the suspension geometry? Or at lest the dynamic operation of the suspension since the shock and spring is now in a different leverage point?

    I thought it would make tuning the rear suspension more difficult (dis assembling and re assembling coil overs) but I admit it may give more precision to adjustments...

    I also wondered about the change in geometry. The trailing arm swing (in my imagination - at least) seems to be better geared to coping with the rearward forces of racing over bumps...
