MG TD TF 1500 - Anti-sway bar for TD - Austin Healey part
|I did a search on anti-sway bars for a TD and came across several of Denis L Baggi's threads who prefers using Austin Healey parts, an idea from Carl Cederstrand. |
I have tried making contact with Denis and Carl via email but haven't received a response. I understand many people use MGB parts, however I would like to know more about the Austin Healey parts and installation before I decide which parts to use. Can anyone provide me some information using Austin Healey parts and installation?
Thank you for any help anyone can provide.
|B parts are readily available and I have them on my car. They work fine. You do need to get the lower A arm that has the hole for the bolt to run thru that is on the stabilizer bar. There are two sized available I think. I believe mine is the 5/8 size. DOes add stability to the car in cornering and everyone that has installed them comments on this.|

|Michael, if you look in the Moss Motors Catalog for the MGB's they sell a kit to install the anti-sway bar in cars that didn't come with it. I am pretty sure it will also install on the TD's, TF's, without a problem. |

|Thanks to Tom and Richard. I am aware of using the MGB parts. I am trying to find out something about using the Austin Healey parts and that installation. I may just end up using the MGB parts, but would like to find out about using the Healey option if possible.|
|I helped a guy with a TD do that with Healey parts 20 years ago. Notably we used the Healey rear shock links. The early short ones. With a bit of effort and time I might be able to get a picture. He's in Wisconsin, as am I.|
