Morris leans to one side

Hi everyone
My 2 door leans to the left enough to be noticed when looking at, I’ve changed to new rear springs as they needed doing anyway, but suspect passenger side front is the issue, how to you adjust the height to bring it level
Also any common problems to suspension sag
Thanks

Re: Mgb axle

Using the moggy axle would be perfect, but I doubt it would handle the extra torque, if there is a stronger diff and hardened halfshafts that would cope with about 170bhp that would be great

Mgb axle

Hi everyone
I’m looking for a axle to suit a Ford zetec engine and type 9 gearbox but that’s fairly straight forward to fit onto the original rear springs and to retain the original look regards wheel spacing , I’ve heard mgb axle is a possible fit ?
Any ideas?
Thanks

Re: Mitsubishi Colt czt swap for morris

Would be a great engine for the minor, just mounting it would be difficult and finding a gearbox. I have thought about it haha, the seats were originally cloth until I had them retrimmed
