If you're in Adelaide then I would take it to Light Wheel alignment, in the
city. I took my P6 2000 there about 7 years ago on the advice of Ken Carter,
the Adelaide's unofficial early Rover mechanic, who is now retired
unfortunately. They replaced all my shock absorbers, matching up the correct
ones, and also doing the rubber boot on the DeDion tube, and new springs.
You could also call Ken Carter for advice. His number is 08 8261 2531. I'm
not sure how he is these days, he must be getting on a bit in age by now,
but he may be good for information.
