Classic Conversion 4 Link with Frontline Rear Disc Brakes?
Posted by: MRobins1057

Good afternoon all.

I am going to install Bill Guzeman's 4 link rear suspension in my '80 MGB, and I would like to add Frontline Development's Rear Disc Brake kit. Has anyone gone down this path before? I've eyeballed all the pictures I could find online and I can't see where there would be any interference issues, but it's hard to tell just from pictures. I've also searched the forums here ( I hate asking stupid or often repeated questions) but couldn't locate one that addressed my concerns.

Thanks in advance.

Mike

I can't say with 100% of certainty that it will work fine, but I would be very surprised if there were any
issues.

I am aware of Bill's 4-link being used with the MGB rearend & disc brakes. Just not with a Frontline kit.

I take it that you have seen the instructions.

Thanks Carl, that's where my mind is at too but it's that 1 or 2 percent that will keep me awake at night lol.

Yes I have the instructions downloaded already for the brakes. I've asked Bill if he could send me what he has so I can review them as well.
