I have said elsewhere that IMO the RR363 ride height is not to good and maybe not necessary.

Trouble is though if the system is removed then the car isn't original. But if it starts to leak then the leak has to be stopped either by proper repair or by using two bleed nipples in the connector block just in front of the rear cross member to the left of the prop shaft, Orange and white circuit.

But that means on a old saggy set of springs like most of us have a problem.

So dis connect both pipes from the rams. Bleed nipple in one port and a grease nipple in the other. Then fill the ram with dot red rubber grease until the car is level. If the ram is leaking the grease will leak out slower than dot and may not leak at all.

This means that one can remove the broken bits for a leisurely repair and a polishing. To remove the grease open the nipple and drop the car. Dot will flush and dissolve any traces.

Incidentally 2 places the ride leaks are the ram seals and valve cross shaft seal area. If a flap of gaffer tape is fixed to the link rod it helps deflect water spray from rear wheels. A hand ful of grease over the cross shaft area helps. Fortunately the ram lives a shelter life at the top of the turret. Unfortunately it's a bugger to unscrew which leads to the ram never beening repaired.
