When I started this project ’38, almost nothing was available – the market is hardly flooded with gear even today, but you can now buy a steering guard at least.
Most are steel, and add a degree of weight to the un-sprung mass, so in an effort to keep weights down where possible, I manufactured mine from 8mm aluminium with a steel diff guard and steel mountings (all zinc plated for extra corrosion resistance)
Mounted at the front radius arm bush to axle mountings, this guard protects the differential, axle casing, anti-roll bar and the steering arm.
I had to remove the radius arms to fit it, and took the opportunity to change the bushes whilst I had everything apart.
So far, it’s done it’s job.
