MG MGA - Anti sway bar bushings
|Hi folks, does anyone know a source for obtaining Stock MGA front anti sway bar rubber mounts and end bushings? Mine are shot, and they make a lot of noise going over bumps. Also, how much of a diference in handling would there be If I just left the anti sway bar off? Thanks, Glenn|
|Anglo-parts (angloparts.com) and Brown&Gammons (ukmgparts.com) list the bushes separately.|
|Glenn, If you plan to buy from Anglo Parts make sure you find out the postage cost before you commit. I don't intend to buy from them again because of the high shipment cost to UK. Mike|
|And Anglo Parts won't tell you how much the shipping is until you've give them your card details. The first I knew was when I received the invoice with the goods -the shipping charge was breath taking!|

|IMHO the anti sway or anti roll bar makes quite a difference to the handling and I very much prefer the feel of the car with it fitted.|
|I don't buy from Anglo either because of their ridiculous shipping charges. B&G are on the other hand extremely reasonable, and will send parts by normal mail at completely justifiable costs.|
As they all get their parts from the same suppliers, there's absolutely np reason to use Anglo unless no-one else has the parts.
|Glenn, I purchased my complete stock MGA anti sway bar with bushing and mounts and everything else from Scarborough Faire. Completely stock and original (I think).|

Because of the similiarity of the T-Series front suspension and the MGA (and the MGB, too), I think you may find that the Dee engineering ARB bushings will fit an MGA.
Have a look at http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductBrowse?storeId=10101&Pr=p_Product.CATENTRY_ID%3A2005918&productId=2005918&catalogId=10109&N=111%2B10209%2B600003409&rlid=group_listing.
Can't go too far wrong for $13 bucks.
