Hi Rafael

I had trouble in my BN1 with clearance at the back – solved it with Monroe air shocks (VW Kharmann Ghia fit) – you could probably do the same at the front. Gives you about 3 inches adjustment of ride height

Hi all,

I am in the process of doing a nut and bolt restoration on a 1962 BT7 Three Carb. My car is located in Lima – Peru and according to Waze we are in the top ten worst places to drive in the world! 


Authorities have found no better way of controlling speed than filling the streets with speed bumps of different height and sizes. There are parts of the city where you can find several on one block!


As you can imagine Lima is not the best place to drive such a low vehicle as a Healey and I am considering increasing the front and rear height of the car maybe a couple of inches. I am aware that this will affect the look of the car but I have no other choice.


Would you please provide me with ideas or suggestions on how to tackle this project before we start assembling the car and suspension?


Thanks in advance for your comments.


Best regards,
