MGC BALL JOINT KIT
We are pleased to announce the development
of a ball joint front suspension for the MGC.
The advantages of this system over the
conventional kingpins (no longer available) is
the reduction of weighting up during cornering,
lightening of the steering at parking speeds
and longevity of the joints. Caster and camber
are adjustable by the included shims. The kit
includes the customers stub axles with fitted
ball joints top and bottom, top wishbone arms,
bump stop and spacer. The original wishbone
pivot and bottom arms are used and all
fasteners are included, together with
instructions. The kit is £745.83 .
Also available is a Superpro polyurethane
bush kit with replacement bushes for
wishbones, torsion bar, and tie bar front and
rear at £94.62 . These prices do not include
CUSTOMER FEEDBACK from David Miller:
“ Have now had the opportunity to drive the car
on motorways, fast A roads and smaller country
lanes. May I offer the following feedback for
The steering has continued to bed-in well and is
now totally smooth in operation.
The C’s steering has always been a handful,
slow and ponderous in operation. The combined
effect of the new ball joint front suspension with
an MG Motorsport high ratio rack have totally
transformed the car’s driving dynamics. The
pleasant weighting, direct action and smooth
operation make the car the ideal long distance
tourer it always should have been.
The improvementis all the more significant
because we included an increase in tyre cross
section in this re-build. I was concerned that
such tyre upgrade would require more effort for
low speed steering but this has not proved the
case. In fact the steering effort is considerably
reduced and a smaller diameter wheel becomes
a very practical option.
Roundabouts are a revelation. Hitherto I have
always applied the minimum amount of steering
required to enter a roundabout then added helm
once the tyres are loaded up and understeer
overcome. The upgrade gives a feeling of
balance and control that was never there
before. the result is a much smoother faster line
through the corner.
Kindest regards, David Miller “
