Triumph TR6 - front and rear springs suspension
|I'm doing a complete restauration of a 1969 tr6. It has been in bits and pieces for quite a while. Right now I'm trying to put back together the puzzle of nice new and shiny bits. There is one problem. There is a difference in length/height of the springs for the suspension and I can't figure out which ones go in the back or the front. Please help me out and tell me if the short ones go in the back or not!|
Thanks in advance!
Check your springs for a dash of color. Look for a dab of paint. This may require some cleaning. The springs with a dab of blue and green go on the front. The spring with just green go on the rear. Good luck. Steve
|Rear is longer. Front free length is 10.3" rear is 10.90". |
If your reuasing springs you may find they are a bit shorter due to sag. Front is usually worse due to engine weight. If they are too far off you might want to replace.
|Thanks! I'll put them on tomorrow! I'll measure them first. I think were replaced somewhere along the 35 years. They looked pretty 'new' when I took them off. I had them sandblasted and powdercoated by this little springfactory. The final test will be when everything is in place!|
