Right front suspension, disc brake not yet installed shows the wheel hub made of hardened steel. The entire front suspension was conceived to emulate endurance racing from yesteryear.

The entire rear suspension including brake drums has been kept as original with the exception of the dual braking system. Great work Eric, this level of work is like art.

The brake pipes on the rear axle have been rebuilt to the same specifications as racing Healeys of the period. Eric Perou carried out the research to achieve these results.

View of the rear axle showing the panhard rod. The internals of the rear axle have been modified in order to cope with the extra torque and horsepower of the engine as it is much more powerful than original.
