I too am planning on rebuilding the steering/front end of my TR3A this winter
and would appreciate any tips in this regard. So far, I plan to:
- replace idler arm and bracket
- replace center tie-rod pins
- replace upper ball joints
- replace upper wishbone bushings
- replace replace trunnion rubber seal
My inner and outer tie-rod ends were replaced three years ago and I only
drive the car in the summer months, so they're still very new.
I would especially like to know how to evaluate the steering box internals
for wear and tear - what should I do here?
My Koni shocks are twenty years old - purchased them new in 1974, then used
the car regularly until 1976, then stored it in a dry but unheated garage
until 1990, got the car back on the road in 1992. So, they really don't have
a lot of wear on them but how can I tell if they are still fine? If they're
not fine, does Koni rebuild them? Or do I have to purchase new ones?
All help greatly appreciated!
