I really have been hiding at the back of the deepest cave. I never seen or heard of those friction shockers/suspension never mind allowing them on the Aussie roads as those in charge I think live further back in the same cave as me. Love your high quality work and the line of cars you have posted, just beautiful.

This very fancy one has a pump up hydraulic bladder to adjust the friction, most of them you just did the adjusting nut up to an eye pleasing tension and that was it.
These are another common type. Inside the tube is a rod with a fat "O" ring. As the force goes on up or down the "O" ring is squashed out to bind on the walls of the tube. Others had spreading comes and still others had springs.
