We may have left the EU… but buy from us with confidence!

The 1st January 2021 officially saw the United Kingdom (UK) leave the European Union (EU). However, here at Hydragas and Hydrolastic Service Ltd, it’s business as usual, and what’s more we’re paying the customs charges for all orders being shipped from UK.

That means you can order with confidence, the price you pay – really is the price you pay. It’s our way of saying “Thank You” for supporting a small British business.

Fitting Suspension Pipes to 1100

Yesterday we fitted a set of new front to rear suspension pipes to this early Austin 1100 Mk2 Automatic. One of the pipes had corroded through and the suspension was down to the bump stops on one side, as replacing the pipes properly is a major operation the customer opted to have both pipes replaced. A considerable amount of work was involved, the rear subframe has to be removed, the front subframe complete with engine has to be lowered by a considerable amount and the steering rack dismounted too to get the pipes behind it. The new pipes were supplied by David at Longbridge Motor Spares and they formed and fitted well

Metro Van

Yesterday we travelled to Buckinghamshire to fit a set of recharged Hydragas units to this Metro Van and then on to a town near Milton Keynes to fit a customer’s own Hydrolastic unit to the rear of this VP Princess to replace a leaking one. The customer also gave us two units to take with us to be rehosed, tested, derusted and painted and then returned to him

Metro in Spalding

Today we carried out a fitment of a set of recharged Hydragas units to this Maxi in Basingstoke, Hampshire. When we arrived we were greeted with collapsed suspension on one side and rock hard on the other with no travel. Someone had recently pumped the car up and this had spelt the end for one of the front units which was ruptured and the other was leaking badly, this is what happens when more and more fluid is pumped into the system with the units empty of gas as they all are now. After our work the car now has a lovely ride and lots of well damped travel on the suspension

Allegro in Newport

Today we fitted a set of recharged Hydragas units to this wonderfully solid and original Allegro Estate in Newport, Wales. Heavy rain was the order of the day but work progressed well with everything coming apart and going together as it should, once completed the car was really nice to drive, it has a really good engine and gearbox and our work was the finishing touch

Princess in Devon

Today we fitted a set of recharged Hydragas units to a Princess in Barnstaple. The job was quite challenging cause one of the radius arm shafts was seized. We carry spare radius arms and shafts incase this happens so these were replaced. The other rear came apart normally but one of the front pipes was badly corroded and weak, this split as soon as an attempt was made to unscrew it. We managed to repair this with a piece of copper pipe bent to shape with a flare on the end and joined to what was left of the original pipe with a compression fitting. The job was completed moments before the heavens opened

Mobiles in Hampshire

We’re down South again. Yesterday we fitted a set of recharged Hydragas units to a lovely original factory black Princess 2200 HLS Automatic in Fleet, Hampshire. Before our work the suspension was rigid as can be seen in our video, within a few hours the ride was transformed and is now beautifully comfortable. The customer was delighted and says that the ride quality is better than his modern Range Rover and today we fitted a set of recharged units to this lovely VP1500. Some time ago we did another VP1500 for the same customer and this is his latest acquisition. The job was completed in good time and the car now rides beautifully www.hahsltd.co.uk
