The return fork springs themselves seem to be not in great shape either. At first glance they seemed OK but closer inspection they were not.

I'm not confident they ll work as intended with those weird bends so Will replace them with new forks to be sure, another thing to add to the list lol

As an add on to that was talking to a few of the jag e type guys here, seemingly the wisdom is to replace the the hold down bolts, and return spring forks whenever your replacing the pads as they wear as a set.

Managed to get the lower rear suspension arms powdercoated and bushed up. Also made them adjustable so can change the rear camber if needed when the the time comes for the tracking and alignment to be dialled in.

Time to start putting things back on the frame for a change. Started with the accumulator and shifter mechanism and bell crank rods and then onto the hard brake lines and anything else I had ready to go back on.
Hopefully restart a bit of progress again..
