I need to replace the rear shocks in my 69 MGC Roadster.
Which would you suggest?

1.  Have the lever arm shocks rebuilt along with installing the heavy-dut=
     shock valves.
2.  Install the Monroe Tube shock conversion from Moss.
3.  Install the SPAX tube shock conversion.

I have had very good service from rebuilt shocks purchased from Brit-Tek.
I talked to the owner about his sourcing and he replied that he uses a
in England as his source of rebuilds.  

I tried the Spax and the uprated lever arms over the past few years and last
I changed the suspension back to totally stock (like MG designed it !!!). I
think the stock
configuration works perfectly for a road car which sees occasional spirited

Uprating the suspension, gives that car a harsher ride, and it can not
absorb the pot-holes/bumps
as well as the stock systems. Here in NJ absorbing pot-holes is an important
facto, especially
as you drive closer to New York City !!!

I used Apple about 10 years ago and was totally disappointed. The front pair
less than 3 months.
