Can anyone tell me what year/make/model car these come from ? (The steering arm bolts to the front upright on one end and the tie rod end attaches to the other end ). They look like Herald arms, but Herald arms lack the bend at the tie rod end.

Thanks!

Have you looked at Spitfire?

Do you have the bump steered rack (shortened with a weld joint in the middle)?

Early spitfires used bolt on steering arms but the later ones it was cast as part of the vertical link. The Vixen's used drum brake Herald vertical links switched R to L. I can check on Monday if there is any difference in the drum brake version vs the early Spit version. I have both at the shop. Did the late Grantura's use the same front suspension as the Vixen's did?

Totally different than a Vixen. The units that Rich is after have an offset bend in them. What year is the TVR?

The Mk 3 Granturas like the OP's and mine used a lot of Herald stuff, but I am not familiar enough with the Spitfire suspension to discriminate between them, having never owned either. I'd look at some Herald parts books first if you can find them.
