The MGC was fitted with conventional rack and pinion steering with a combined steering and ignition lock. Throughout production, the type of lock varied from a range of different suppliers. The steering wheel was a black plastic handled T-formation, 16 ½” in diameter, like that of the MGB however, there was a sewn-on black leather cover for the rim.
Due to the engine size of the MGC, the suspensions had to be altered from the MGB. A deep U-shaped welded in crossmember was fitted to allow new engine and suspension mounting points. A new suspension with a swivel pin assembly was located between a triangular top arm and a back-to-back lower arm. Anchored to the lower suspension arms were telescopic shock absorbers.
