Since two years I'm running the MGB GT springs too and they work fine.
Not too stiff. Not to forget I run 4.5 degree of camber.

There goes those pesky variables again.

It seems that most of the TR3/TR4 vintage racers are set up in such a way
that having a rear sway bar is not a good idea.

Perhaps someone can come up with a new formula that includes a rear sway bar
that makes us handle better and faster.

Chris' set up includes lower spring rates in the front. We have run the MGB
GT springs the front since 1993, but not afraid to change. Those are about
500 lbs.

No wrong answers in this thread.  Ultimately the answer lies in lots of
testing and changing all of the variables.    Not an option for many of us.

We did hard mount the rear shackles with a bronze bushing kit and that is a
clear improvement over rubber bushings for both race and street cars.
