STOCK TRAILING ARM MOUNTING BRACKETS, TR250,
"This Is The Earlier Configuration...
Triumph changed the trailing arm mounting brackets, the rear road springs, and the
rear suspension bump stops after the 1971 model year in an attempt to solve the problem
of negative camber and the problem of rear-end squat during hard acceleration. Parts for
both configurations are available with the exception of the road springs, and I have
experimented with installing the late configuration on my TR5 to see if it improved the
common problems, and my results were inconclusive. My recommendation, therefore, is
to fit either the original configuration for your car or, better, to fit the adjustable
mounting brackets listed on page 98. Choose the bushes which best fit your driving
style—I use the uprated rubber ones with good success. This section lists the earlier
stock bracket configuration. The later one is listed in the next section.
