SUS­PEN­SION

Classic Ford - - CF BUYER -

Tired springs and dampers are eas­ily and cheaply re­placed. Void bushes on the rear trail­ing arms fail reg­u­larly — sure signs they’re worn are a loose rear end and be­ing able to eas­ily rock the back of the Cortina from side to side. Watch for polyurethane re­place­ments though, as while they last they make the ride very harsh. Tie-rod bushes are also prone to wear, a clunk­ing un­der brak­ing be­ing a sign that they need re­plac­ing.
