Will a Gas Tank cause Suspension damage ?
I've heard some folks saying that the boot of cars like Zen/M800 which are not having a separate boot space unlike sedans and they were never meant to carry large loads in their small boot; fixing a LPG/CNG tank may cause suspension damage in the longer run. Is there any truth in this statement ?
Is it an utter crap since it's like a kid always sitting in the boot space and how is it going to affect the rear suspension? But I've seen rear suspensions in gas converted Zens/M800s winding up at 60,000 KMS. Is it normal for cars like these or is it because of the tank in the boot?
Is it better to fix Gas tanks in sedans or in Omni which is having a leaf spring based rear suspension ?

OT! Wher do you get these questions from? "The week's assignment" ?
If they damage the suspension, what would you say abt a car wher you have ther owner chauffeured 90% of the time on one side! Just curious.
