Has anyone replaced their rear springs recently? If so and who's did you use? Tried Moss's and the car sat too high [over 16"] and rode way too rough. I Could not keep the mirror sucker attached to windscreen. Put the old ones back on for now. Got to get to Dixon C.A. meet this Sunday. Thanks Mike

Are they Heritage springs? (they would have had stickers on indicating such if they were).

I had GT springs (Heritage springs) shipped from Brown and Gammons in the UK. Rear sits at approx 15” from center of wheel to bottom of chrome strip. Probably won’t work for your timeline though...

I bought GT springs for my MGB last year, from Basil.

They are great and my car rides very smooth.

I suggest you contact him and ask which ones he sells

Thank you for the reply, They had AHC31 painted on them but no "Heritage tag" on them. I assumed Moss was selling "Made in England springs" I will contact Basil next week. Thanks Mike

Doesn’t matter who you buy from as long as you confirm they’re Heritage springs. Make sure you ask the supplier.

When re placing any suspension components, front or rear, important to not do any final tightening until the cars is back on the ground or otherwise in its fully loaded condition. Otherwise you may force bushings to take a set in an unnatural position...
