I have a '74 2500M. I'm looking into springs and shocks, or more specifically adjustable coilovers. So far I've found that Koni, Spax, AVO, and GAZ all offer units for my car. What I'm looking for are recommnendations from those with experience as to which would work best for a combo street and track car. I'd also like to know if there are any other brands that make units for my car that I should consider.
Thanks in advance,
Jim

Try contacting Hayes Harris at www.wirewheel.com (http://www.wirewheel.com) or Scott at Predator Performance at 727-539-0218 in Largo FL. Both groups race TVRs.

These guys sell coil-overs and other TVR stuff. They are in Pennsylvania

This place is in the UK. They also have high-end ($$$) coil-overs.

You might also consider going to "Woodwork 2007" in Carlise, PA. Lots of vendors with Tivver-stuff. It's in the Spring, but not sure when.

Rich Rock is the man who helped my Brother set-up his Vixen.

He can be found here.

BTW....Don't let him talk you into hill climbing!
Ask him how many times he almost died.

(Talk to him fast....He may not be around for long) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif
