Hello All. I would appreciate any useful replies pls.
My 3ltr petrol has 4year old IFHS spheres that have done +20k miles. And i’m quite sure the spheres are the final piece of the suspension refurb puzzle and return the smoothness.
Is it a valid option to recharge the existing IFHS spheres with a trip to Pleides?
ANother idea as I do prefer OEM, would be to buy used OEM citroen spheres, and send them off for testing and recharge. Then i’ll have a swing set ready when i do get the existing spheres pressure tested.
But do i need to be concerned about the part numbers?
all Hydropneumatic3 C5 and C6 spheres are effectively the same unit if i understand correctly - apart from different pressures? Is that correct.?

My research so far if it helps anyone
50bar - front & rear corner sphere x4 - citroen c6 part - 527610
70bar - front regulator sphere x1 - citroen c6 part - 527627
40bar - rear regulator sphere x2 - citroen c6 part - 527281

Thanks for all the useful posts.
Invaluable
BR

C5 ones will not fit to 2.7/3.0 because AMVAR on the C6 (=large sphere oil hole) if I'm got it right. C5 are all without AMVAR.

Off the top of my head so double check on IFHS Sphere Shop:
Rear corners are 40 bar. Rear stiffness spheres are also 40 bar.

Hi, just checked on Sphere Shop.Yes, rear corners are 40 bar. Personally I would never fit spheres from a 2nd car or unknown source because of risk of contaimination.
