Adjustable Lower Rear Toe Wishbones
An Inexpensive way of enhancing your driving pleasure. Adjustable lower rear toe bones make adjusting the rear suspension toe-in a simple operation. They are an easy-to-fit pair of replacements for the non-adjustable units you have at present. Why fit them? For 2 main reasons:
Firstly, for your Elan or Elan +2 equal rear toe settings are vital to obtain optimum handling performance, over our many years of experience we have found that at least 3/16” toe in at the rear works for fast road use, this can be achieved by fitting the Spyder rear toe bones. For sprint/hill climb & circuit driving the cars will benefit from even more toe in.
Secondly, You can fine tune your car’s handling to suit your own particular driving style.
