MGB V8 front suspension

Post by AndyBv8 » Tue Jun 16, 2020 2:24 pm

Hi mg folk, I have recently replaced front shocks, springs and bushes on my Mg, drives great , handles much better, but it is now sitting much higher than it was, has anyone been in this situation, or is it normal to allow time to settle? kind regards Andy

My best bet would be its because the replacement springs are the longer ones that were supplied on Rubber Bumper cars and that the springs you have taken off were the shorter ones that were standard on Chrome Bumper cars.

I changed my BGT over to chrome bumper springs a while ago and was surprised how much visual difference it made to the stance of the car.

I wondered if that was the case, it does make sense, I will have to reorder, many thanks
