This little car has never handled well and I just thought it was the rear spring or shocks so I would sort it out at some point.
I also thought the body was not central as the near side wheel was well inside the arch unlike the offside wheel, in fact, I had to use 20mm spacer to get it to look right.
Now that I'v fitted larger wheels and tyres (15x215x55) have I found the problem.
Larger MG minilite wheels fitted.
Near side view of wheel inner wheel arch.
Off side view of wheel inner wheel arch.
Turn out this car has a "short" drive shaft fitted to the near side and a "long" drive shaft fitted to the off side.
Firstly, I did'nt know there was a difference in drive shaft lengths and secondly,as far as I'm aware both drive shafts should be the same length .
This miss-match of drive shafts sets the rear suspension drop-links at different angles which would have cause the handling issue, oops!!
0'well you learn something different every day.
