I'm used to driving trucks, so I don't mind the comparatively far smoother ride
of my MGB. Don't have any suggestions/opinions there, but some may recommend
checking into the Monroe shock conversion. Or is that for more sport tuning?

But, I'm an originality freak, anyway. I prefer restoring my cars to the way
they were designed. I'm breaking away from that, though, on my 58 Magnette. The
air filter is bolted under the carbs and is a complete pain in the a**.

Best of luck, and congrats on getting back into MGs and finding this list!
