At the rear, don't do the longer shackle routine.  That causes some 
weirdness in the rear end geometry.  The car will take two distinct 
arcs through the corner.  Put spacers between the axle and the leaf 
springs and install longer U-bolts instead.

I seem to recall something about using an MGB-GT front spring (Moss 
has those for about $32 / spring), but I'm sure others have more 
details on that.
