Triumph TR6 - Spring 2004 Mods to my TR6


Well I'm eagerly awaiting my packages to arrive which contain lots of goodies for the TR6. They are as follows:

-Spax front shocks
-Rear tube shock conversion kit with Spax shocks (uses special brackets which mount where the old lever-arm shocks used to)
-Falcon stainless steel sports exhaust system from Moss
-Set of original Minilite wheels (15X6)
-Four new Dunlop SP40s for the original steel rims

I still need to pick out some tires for the Minilites. Will have to give Tirerack.com a look for those. Additionally, I have a Kenlowe fan sitting on the shelf which I ordered last fall, that will go on too.

Hey, Aaron. You didn't mention a thing about bushings. If you just picked up the car and have no history on it, all those revisions won't mean much if the front/rear suspension has loose bushings. That could really be your next big job.

And poly for the steering rack....

Brent brings up a great point. It wasn't until I replaced the trailing arm bushings and diff mounts in the rear and the front suspension bushings did I realize the tight handling this car is capable of. Strongly urge you to upgrade those areas in conjunction with your other mods.

I used to have poly bushes on the diff mounts but after going over a pot hole in the road my diff came away from the chassis (nasty to repair) I replaced the poly bushes after repairs to chassis with new rubber ones and hopfully the problem wont happen again, I think the poly bushes are to hard in this area. Our UK roads are in a discracfull state of repair, All the best BAZZ.

Yea, upgraded rubber for the diff mounts is as far as you want to go to modernize that area.

Ha! Thanks for reminding me guys. I got prothane poly bushing kits for the front a-arms and for the rear trailing arms too. Forgot to mention those on my original post.
