Quoted from Spider
MK1 Spring is bolted to the diff solidly and a swing spring pivots on the top of the diff, is the easiest way for me to explain. Makes a world of difference to the handling.
I am sure there is someone on hear who has done it before and could tell you the best spring to use.

Lots of threads on the subject, type swing spring conversion into Google ( other search engines are available) it's quicker than this sites search facility.


I have converted my 13/60 saloon to swing spring using later Spitfire/GT6 spring, bought from Fitchetts. Improves the handling immensely. The other bits, ie spring box etc. I bought second hand from Spitfire Graveyard. Cheers, Dave.
