  4. Uprated Lower Ball Joint

    While looking for various components on the suspension I have purchased the following Lower Ball Joint from Race Tech Direct who are specialist TVR dealers.

    The figures I was quoted were of course for an ideal world for a turbo engine, but the basic idea is the higher flow the better. A second problem with the DC pumps is that i was running their controller, so at times ...
