One of the easier jobs if all you need is new gaiters, track rod ends and mounts. Apart from that removed a huge amount of grease, dirt and paint and then repainted as original… Results below:David3 June 2013 at 19:14 #50213
My car needs new rack mounts, the originals have perished, so have opted for solid aluminium replacements, temporarliy if necessary in the interests of getting its MOT asap – Christian did you go for the original metalastic ones or change to solid? Does anyone else have road experience of the solid mounts from a “road feel” perspective?Christian3 June 2013 at 21:36 #50214
I went for metalastic, when it’s new it’s pretty stiff. I updated to aluminium on my TR4 but I couldn’t honestly say if it felt much different as I also fitted polybushes to the suspension at the same time… In theory it should make the steering a bit tighter.David13 June 2013 at 10:54 #50232
My car got its MOT on Monday. Have driven about 40 miles since, and steering feels much crisper with solid mounts rather than perished metalastic, no surprise. Throttle response much improved too having taken slack out of the linkage with new parts and bushes as necessary
