Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2002045979
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An efficient method of supplying a first series of suspension struts for a first vehicle 12A and a second series of suspension struts for a second vehicle 12B. The method includes providing a first series 20A of pressure vessels for the first vehicle and a second series 20B of pressure vessels for the second vehicle. Each pressure vessel defines an outer cavity 36 with an effective fluid volume. The effective fluid volume of the pressure vessels of the first series is smaller than the effective fluid volume of the pressure vessels of the second series. The method also includes providing a series of hydraulic tubes 24 for the first vehicle and for the second vehicle, wherein each hydraulic tube is adapted to be located within the outer cavity of the pressure vessel of the first series and alternatively within the outer cavity of the pressure vessel of the second series.
