all good idea's lads, keep them coming (not sure about the cement though........)
I had thought about removing the spring and fitting coilovers. As you said, this would need some means of "tieing" the upper mounts (i.e. the old leaf spring mounts) to the top of my diff (where the spring currently sits). Bushed rods would achiev this, and could also be done with out modifying the chassis at all (which is the main driving factor in this)
Coilover mounts could also be fabricated in such a way that the original mounts remain unaltered.
german, whats a camber compensator? is it another anti-roll bar mounted under the axle to limit travel?
Kev, I didn't get the measurement you asked for, I stripped the spring down to it's component leaves, fitted the lower one and it's no good for the job. If I stick with a rear leaf, it looks like I shall have to get one made. Anyone used a good firm (prefer in the West Country or somwhere that "understands" and does mail order?
