EVO 3 MGB Ball Jointed Front Suspension
There's rather more to the Evolution 3 front suspension, as its price indicates. ..it does away with the compromised lever-arm damper (which also acts as the top wishbone) in favour of GAZ or Koni telescopic damper and fabricated top wishbone. However, it also replaces the wear-prone kingpin with a standard upright which swivels on modern ball joints and is designed to allow relatively simple camber and caster adjustment. “Does it work? Resoundingly, yes. Still on standard-rate springs, the black Roadster manages the clever trick of giving a more comfortable ride while handling considerably more precisely. On the horrifically bad Fen roads around MGOC Cambridgeshire HQ, the little B copes admirably with dips, bumps and abrupt camber changes. The surprise comes when the tyres - common-or garden 185/55s - begin to squeal long before the suspension shows any sign of trauma. That wouldn't be the case in a standard B.
