Inside Line: Suplex

by

Citroen C1, Peugeot 107 & Toyota Aygo – in production from 2005 onwards

Front & Rear Suspension

C1, 107 and Aygo share a common platform and 90 percent of components are identical. This includes coil-springs and only three part numbers – two front springs and one rear – are required to cover all models. Rear springs locate in rubber pads top and bottom and have a long life, but the lower end of the front spring locates directly in the pan welded to the front strut and metal-to-metal contact, over a period of time, causes accelerated corrosion of the bottom coil. Recommend to vehicle owners that rusty springs are replaced – in axle pairs – to prevent the inconvenience of a breakage on the road.
