Post by Ddcimino on Fri Aug 12, 2016 12:45 pm

Hey guys, I ordered hinges for a 67 healey 3000, I don't like the fit or look, What works?
Also I have a leaf spring car has anyone installed a 4 link or independent rear? I need all the info I can get.

About 3 years ago we put those (from Victoria British) on our car and we really like the look as they are actual Austin Healey hinges. In my opinion they look much better than the boat hinges that were on the car. Everyone has their likes and dislikes. I do not know of any othere hinges you might use.

I'm running 4-link at the moment, was installed on the car before I got it, but if you need measurements or anything I can probably help you out. I also have a spare set of brackets that weld on to the diff, i'll check where the previous owner got them from (I'm saving them for my diff swap but can give you measurements at worst). I'm going to be changing my diff from a ford 8inch (open) to a ford explorer 8.8 (with positraction) in the next year or two and will definitely post the "how to" on my build thread.

hey your car looks just like mine imagine that
I run C4 Corvette suspension all independent coil overs on front transverse spring on back.
I'm not a "real" mechanic... I bought it that way.. handles superb but is pretty stiff for sure.

Hey John! If that's the case, wouldn't mind seeing a pic of your car. Suspension setup sounds great!

Hey John, if you are trying to add them to the gallery it won't work, it's not made for user uploads like that. You can either post them in a message here using the "host image" button (looks like a little green square with a save icon in it right above the box where you write message replies). Or e-mail them to me at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and I will add them to the gallery for you.

Cheers

David
