CUSTOM FRONT SUSPENSION
FOR MGB/MGBGT

This unit is in production and available.

Our goal was to build a lightweight racing suspension with state of the art geometry and corrected roll center. We knew this couldn't be done with heavy components borrowed from some passenger car. True geometry meant building our own pieces. Clean design results in an eighty pounds lighter unit that bolts into the MGB without body modification. Most of the weight savings is unsprung weight.

Every piece is custom built to achieve an ideal suspension. We build our own lightweight racing spindles from 4130N chrome moly. The steering rack is built just for our suspension. Our bushings are all machined from Nylatron GS. There is no urethane in our suspension. The specially built components give correct ackerman, anti dive and camber gain. Basic geometry is patterned after the BMW M3. The result is light precise steering and confidence inspiring handling.

Caster and camber are quick and easy to adjust. Carrera adjustable coil over shocks make ride height and spring changes easy.

Brakes are Wilwood 11.75 ventilated discs with Wilwood Dynalite four piston calipers. The difference in stopping is incredible.

The hubs are aluminum alloy and can be had with any wheel stud pattern.

Price of the suspension is $3825. Comes complete as shown plus stainless steel brake lines. Also available is an extra cost option for 302 Ford installations, which includes engine mounts and rear transmission mount.

Unit is available in Right Hand Drive at no additional charge.

Now available in two widths: stock MGB and 2 inches over.

This is what the completed assembly looks like - all this is included in the kit.
