My First car, an Austin Allegro, had the hydrolastic suspension. They were

in short order. I could change them over in about 45 minutes in the road
side before I twigged and replaced the bearing carrier.
The handling and ride were very good. In the wet, I could out-handle the
college mate's Mk.I Escort on the roundaouts of London!
Oh, and and yes I had a series I Allegro complete with the square steering
