 increasing the power output and speed of any vehicle, you should ensure that
 your brakes, steering, chassis etc... can cope with the modifications.

  Uprated lever arm dampers
  We supply new uprated dampers (as original fitment) outright which are
  built on the original Armstrong equipment. Each unit is tested to check its
  performance against the design parameters, and the valves are individually
  set to provide the correct hydraulic characteristics for the application. For
  some models, we also supply reconditioned units on a exchange basis.

  If your standard units are in good condition, we stock competition valves
  should you wish to uprate them, as well as Penrite shock absorber oils so
  you can tweak your damping rates. Units are sold individually but should be
  fitted in pairs. The 25% uprated shocks work well on a road/fast road car.

 The kit includes a top arm assembly which replaces the lever arm damper,
 providing more torsional and lateral rigidity which has an immediate
 steadying effect on the handling of the car. This rigidity also improves the
 braking effect as the ‘twisting’ effect usually experienced under heavy
 braking is eliminated by the top arm.

 The top arm has also been designed to give approximately 1 degree of
 negative camber to tighten up your Spridget’s handling. The negative
 camber reduces understeer giving quicker cornering response and superior
 road holding. The telescopic damper unit has been chosen for it progressive
 damping, as the suspension movement increases the damping increases - this             Anti-tramp bar kit
