This is a brand new manufactured in the UK, Front Shock Absorber for your MGA. Being a vital part of the front suspension of the MGA they must be kept in tip top shape. With uses shock does double duty, it is the upper suspension pivot and dampens the ride. Overtime the bushings in the shock absorber wear which causes slop in the suspension and will let the shock oil leak out. All of these failures will lead to a poor driving MGA. Put a new pair on today and get the ride back in your MGA.
