Anyone got any experience of the bolt kits you can buy? Paddocks show the items and Canley give a vague list. I'll normally have no preference over either but I have found (from both) that you don't always get what you expect in the kits. Has anyone got direct experience of either?

I'm after a full suspension kit for the front and back, including shock absorber bolts. I would try and source them individually from another supplier but for two reasons;
I can't remember the name of the supplier  
I can't find a specification of the bolts required and measuring is out of the question as I know I've got to cut at least two off the car...


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

I've had front and rear suspension bolt kits for the Spitfire from Paddocks and didn't have any issues with what they supplied.

Hi,
For suspension bolts n Nylocs, I always get the yellow/chromate?  ones. I also try and get the higher torque ones if available in yellow and not black.
For non suspension I buy A4 or A2 stainless fasteners.
I use workshop manual for sizes or Canley Classics. (Sorry Dave).

I don't use the recommended wishbone bolts as the un-threaded part is too short; One reason the kits are not a good buy.

Can't remember where I got my yellow fasteners from at the moment.

Cheers,
Iain.

Jon Wolfe sells the wishbone bolt kits on his website with the longer unthreaded part at £6.50 +p&p for both sides. Quite why Triumph thought that running a bush on the threads of a bolt was a good idea? The bolts will also fit the rear by using a packing washer. I've just bought 3 sets - enough to do both cars front and rear. Total cost was £24, which I don't consider unreasonable for these safety critical items. He also sells the suspension mounts with a longer stud if you are running out of thread and need extra spacers to give you more front camber.

I bought them from James Paddock and found some bits to be missing. Emailed stating what I had and the missing bits arrived the next day.
