Triumph TR6 - Front rnd Rebuild
|What have I done wrong? I just rebuilt the front end on 70 tr6. Replaced all bushings, springs(stiffer),& shocks with parts from Goodparts. I have everything put back together & the spindles do not turn. The car is all apart just a bare frame sitting on jack stands.|
Shouldn't they turn?
|The spindles will be difficult to turn after a rebuild, but not impossible. Try loading the suspension with the wheels on the ground--that should get them turning.|
|I would agree with Rick. I rebuilt one last winter on a bare frame and barely noticed the difference from the old to the new. I assume you oiled the trunnion properly and that the ball joints are new and were free to move?|
Does your car have the eccentric turning stop or the round one. If eccentric is it turned so that the vertical link cannot move?
Is there a new bolt run up hard against something?
Even with the engine/tranny in place you should still be able to turn the wheels by hand with it fully on the floor.
