Re: Positive camber?

The shim washers do make quite a difference. Where they are fitted their thickness has quite an effect. If the springs are making the front that much higher then as Ted said it will affect the front end geometry a lot. I swapped pretty much all of my suspension for slightly uprated parts from Chris ...

Re: Do MG B Wheels fit?

Parts I had to get were, p...
