Lotus Elan & +2 Front Suspension

Although they’ve been copied by many over the years the genuine Spyder wishbones are still the best, and, suprisingly still the best value.

Upper Front: +2BOWB060£60.30 Per Pair

The inboard ends of the Spyder tubular wishbones for the Elan and the +2 are reinforced by unequal length wraps. The outer ends of the lower front wishbones (where the spring/damper and trunnion attaches) have been designed to combat bolt hole elongation.


The wishbones are finished in a durable black powder coat and supplied with outer bolts, washers and nylocs. (Note a car set is 2x pairs upper & 2x pairs lower)
