Remember the Peugeot 205 CTI convertible I bought? I just broke the rear torsion beam axle... while it’s being auctioned as we speak. I didn’t even know this was possible. This is going to be expensive. Goodbye profit, hello loss.

I brought it to a shop I trust. They’re not cheap, but they know what they’re doing, use their heads and use decent used parts when needed. Luckily there are still lots of 205 junkers available, sadly my 205 is lowered and the shop guy told me he needs an axle from a lowered car. I have no clue. I suggested they use a regular axle and replace the front springs with regular ones instead, to jack it up to a normal ride hight with parts that are available on every junk yard.

Thoughts?

For comparison, my GTI and CTI. The GTI has the stock ride hight. The CTI axle wasn’t broken here.
