A car parts supplier here in the US (AutoZone) claims to have the part. You may try to get info and/or order online at autozone.com. This will fit all ZEDs that use only one support strut. Good luck..............:nervous:

Bill, thanks so much for the information...unfortunately I live in the UK and they don't seem to be able to ship abroad. I'll have get around it another way. But at least I know were they are.

Thanks very much

I plan on replacing the shovel handle I now use to hold up my hatch soon.. when I do get one from them I'll give you a report on it and if you don't find another source, I'd be happy to acquire one for you and ship it.

Guy,

Why didn't you think to ask me?!

I have loads of stuff like that in my garages. Let me have a dig over the weekend and I will see if I can come up with a good one for you. I know there's more than one in there somewhere...........

Are you now on the road with it as a daily driver?

All the best,

Alan T.

That would be fantastic! Just give us a yell if you find one and I'll come over and collect it. Thanks mate. If you can't I'll wait to see how Bill gets on.

Yep, up and running and loving it. Changed front wheels from 205's to 195's and have done some soundproofing. Tweaking, tweaking .....

Guy,

Hope you are not driving it in the driving rain we have had over the last few days here in London.............

I went down to the garages today and fished out a good strut for you. Its still got lots of gas in it ( could hardly compress it ) and I brought it home with me. We had dinner together tonight and then took a romantic stroll down by the river ( actually I made that last bit up... ).

Give me a call and we can arrange to meet up and I'll hand it over. Its got a few scratches on it - so you might want to paint it before you put it on the car.

I've got a good 3.9 ratio diff. if you fancy getting rid of that super tall American one in your car at the moment ( that should wake it up a bit ).

All the best,

Alan T.

Hey Saint

Why the change from 205 to 195's??? I have been thinking about going up to 205's in the near future. :ermm:

195's give much sharper steering. 205's are a weighty tyre. I like the car to handle light at the front.
