Suspension and Steering

New: Steering rack oil special deal, see here 5. Do not put grease in steering racks! We can overhaul steering racks to order on an exchange and return basis.

Note: Re-conditioned items carry a replacement warranty for six months from time of sale. If you are not happy with what you have received, please contact us immediately.

Unfortunately there are very few front shock absorbers available. We have rear shocks plus occasional front ones. We will maintain current prices as long as possible. Special requirements can be catered for including re-conditioning and springs. Alternative suppliers include ProTech, SPAX, AVO, GAZ, etc.

Bolt packs for suspension (16x bolts, nuts and washers all in BZP) does front and rear now available at £28.00 plus PnP. We can also supply them in sets for front only (10x bolts, £18.00) or rear (6x bolts, £10.00). A complete car set including bolts, screws and washers for suspension including the brackets to floor is £44.00. These are ``S'' class tensile the same as the original spec. All bolts also available separately, please ask. Some stainless bolts also to order at approx 2x price, please ask.

All wheel bearings and other bearings are currently available. We can still occasionally obtain the original spec rear wheel bearings, but they are quite expensive.
