SUS­PEN­SION

Classic Ford - - CFBUYING RESTORING -

Although set up for com­fort, an overly bouncy ride points to tired springs and dampers. Phys­i­cally chang­ing the front springs can be dif­fi­cult. Poor steer­ing re­sponse is of­ten a re­sult of per­ished tie-bar and anti-roll bar bushes. Power steer­ing racks aren’t the most durable and the un­der bon­net po­si­tion of the con­nect­ing hoses means they can suf­fer heat dam­age. Ghia X’s orig­i­nal Miche­lin TRX tyres are costly to re­place at circa £275 per cor­ner.
