Sorry for the cross-post, but I wanted to share my feedback on the front springs adventure I went through. After trying to different vendors I finally just installed a pair of Richard's front springs and they fit and worked perfectly. I was looking for a slightly lower than stock ride height but nothing crazy and they are just the ticket.

If you are considering new front spring I'd strongly/highly recommend Richard and just get it done right the first time.

I hope this saves someone else a bunch of time and effort.

Anymore info on this Richard guy??? Do you have a link to his website, or a way to contact him??? Googling "Richard's front springs" didn't help. :crazyeyes:

Art, I'll bet that Tom meant Richard Good, as in Goodparts.

Art- I am taking a guess that Tom is speaking of Richard Good of Good Parts (https://www.goodparts.com/). I too have used Richard and and can say that he is one of the best I've encountered in obtaining parts as well as working on Triumphs.

Art- you can see that Paul has faster fingers than I do.... :jester:

Thanks Paul. If the OP said Richard Good, I would have known who he was talking about.

Sagging begins at 30, whether we admit it or not. By 40, we are pretty much ignoring it and by 50, complete and total denial has set in.

His springs have a very nice ride height. What did you do for the rear? Are you running upgraded sway bars?

Hi Doug - I have a set of his rear springs but haven't installed them yet. Stock front bar with poly mounts, I have a some sort of funky rear bar that I'm thinking about installing, but was going to wait until I rebuilt the rear and drove her a bunch first.

What are you running?

I have Richard Good front and rear springs, Amco sway bars front/rear, Nylatron bushings, and adjustable trailing arm brackets; tube shocks and a couple other things.
You will notice a great difference in handling, especially with the sway bars.

Sure there's Cher, Madonna, A-Rod, Kobe, Tiger et al but we've got Richard, Herman, Dan, Art, Rick, Ted and, now past, Uncle Jack. :driving:

I've got Goodparts stuff all over my car too. Geeze I've sent him a lot of money over the past 4 years! :yesnod:

Me too.
My old GP wish list is now either on the car or on the shelf waiting to be installed...if I ever get my engine back from the shop...is it 9 or 10 months now?

Doug, so what is up with the engine rebuild? Any updates or just dead air as to status?

Did you ever say something that you wished you could take back? Those two little words I said when the block was dropped of at the shop are coming back to haunt me. My idea of "No hurry" and his are a little different.
If the car wasn't running so well, I would be upset.
I ran into a little bit of a set back last month working on the head, so I'm now looking at next Spring.
