    There was a later mk2 specifically for the RV8 as mogsy suggests. I had one. The chassis had an extra cross member between the main rails under the front part of the RV8 sump compared to earlier...

    Yes, that's a reasonable way to isolate the rear, but you might see less drop at the front because the rear will have to lift the whole weight instead of being helped by the rear springs, as the sag...

    Some ideas. Your problem could well be in the rear suspension. I assume the rear is mk2 Granada. It sort of sounds like something is moving when jacked up, and the settling down after a few bounces....

    I'm surprised that your original springs were longer. Maybe a change in the mk2 chassis design. As I'd said, my old car had compressed front spring length of 8.8 inches, your car must have been...
