I've used gaz GHA's on a couple of other cars, but the non-gold ones with just the rebound adjustment. Really well made and you can fairly dial them in even with just the rebound, and gaz themselves are more than happy to swap out springs for different rates and service dampers all at good rates. Spot on to deal with too :D

Not sure what's available for MGR cars I'm afraid. If you know someone that's handy with a milling machine I'm sure they could knock you up some camber adjustable mounts at least if there's nothing available off the shelf

Isn't brown and Gammons MG dealership I didn't realise you should get adjustable top mounts from there?

Unfortunately you have to buy everything separate. I think the mounts were about £150 the bearings for the mounts where about £100 then the over bits like bolts, fitting etc where about another £50ish was long time ago can't remember :D
