HOYLE Coil Over Front Suspension Kit. MGB & MGB V8 Upgrade. Coil over adjustable Gaz shocks. Includes full set of Poly Bushes.Produced by Hoyle Suspension, and as described on our website, our replacement double wishbone, coil over front suspension system has been specially designed to overcome some of the criticism of the original or other alternative options. The wishbones are fabricated using high grade tubular steel that improves the structural strength and rigidity, the springs are positioned closer to the wheel enabling a much softer spring to be used, and together with high quality damper units results in a more supple suspension. The springs supplied are a standard 2 ¼ I/D which are used on a variety of special and race cars. These can be obtained in a wide variety of stiffness and lengths. New anti-roll (sway) bar links are supplied fitted with a spherical joint to provide a more positive reaction. The bottom stub axle bolt is replaced with a special high tensile bolt that has a small flat machined on it which carries 2 snail cams, this enables the camber angle to be adjusted simply and quickly. Several shim washers used at the top end of the stub axle provide a small degree of castor adjustment.
All fabricated parts and springs are black powder coated, the dampers are chemically blacked, and nuts and bolts are bright zinc plated. Fitting the kit is straightforward. It replaces some of the components normally fitted, as below.The four front wishbone arms. The lever arm shock absorber. The bolts and nuts from shock absorber mount, top and bottom kingpin assembly. The bump stop and spacers. The rubber bush part of the anti-roll (sway) bar link arms. The lower wishbone pivots and stub-axle assembly are retained. In order to be able to fit a full size spring/damper unit of this type it is necessary to modify the ends of the front cross-member to provide clearance. Only modification involves cutting off the end of the cross-member and welding in a gusset (supplied in the kit).
NB: These kits are suitable for both chrome and rubber bumper MGB. The ride height of a rubber bumper car can be lowered using the spring height adjuster but this will result in a similar amount of bump travel being lost.
