Great timing. Something to work on during the autumn and winter months.

I wish I’d had it sooner … race car gone and been at a bit of a loose end .

Looking good, it should be easy enough to get that ground out and tig welded. 👍🏻

 

Mike has some spares , so we will swap it I think .

Advice please .

Is there a certain sequence to assembling the front suspension ? It looks like if I just have the dampers and lower wishbones in place ( i.e. no upright/top wishbone etc ) the lower wishbone will be in contact with the chassis . The springs ( 2.5inch) are a bugger to compress .

 

Also what is this part ?

Thanks in advance.

The springs must be held securely in a compressed state for assembly. Are the dampers' lower ends bolted through the lower of the 2 sets of holes in the TCA's? Often they are assembled in error with bolt through the uppers.

Thanks Dr Doom . I am using the lower holes.

I need some more washers etc before I can proceed.

Got some new spring compressors coming for the smaller springs .

In a rush earlier, I should have added that the S1/S2 front suspension droop is remarkable in that the A-R bar and steering tie rod come into contact ( or utterly near ) at full extension of the damper. Does not seem to be of consequence in use, however.

Cheers
