Shock Type
« on: May 10, 2020, 12:57:16 PM »
Should I stay with the stock type of shocks on an MGB or change to the tube shocks?

I've found the factory ones work best. If you want stiffer, upgrade the internals.
For track use and souping it up, get a full front and rear end with coilovers. Expensive, but the only thing better.

I find most of the easily affordable tube shock kits spoil the handling.
