Replace Original Shocks?
« on: November 14, 2020, 05:06:21 PM »
We have a 1975 MG B, (you rebuilt it about 20 years ago). We are undergoing a second rebuild, (reside in SC). Believe that the shocks are original? Should we replace them?

Long time since we're seen each other, for sure!  Replace the shocks only if they're faulty.  If the arm moves with great resistance then they're OK.  They're usually OK!  If you do want to fit rebuilt units, contact Peter Caldwell at Worldwide Imports in Madison, Wisconsin.  He's the best rebuilder.
