Bn2 redesign front suspension help needed

Hello all. I have a 55 100/4 and want to totally get rid of the knock off wheel retention and update to disk brakes and rack and pinion steering. I have researched and all I find is vague mention of MGB parts usage...does anyone have more information, such as year, will spindles fit ect. Truthfully I toyed with the idea of Mustang 2 but it seems a little too wide. I could live with the original lever shock as I have one of the old Koni shock kits still in the box. I have a stroker 383 SBC, TH350, and 12 bolt with turned down Ford axles and 4.56 posi in it. I guess what I'm saying is I could go in either direction.....Tubular A arms and spindles or just updating the stock to disk. Cant race with knock offs so they have to go.

Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated......Thank you, Phil

No one knows?.....Any idea where I could find MGB front end measurements? Ive looked and looked and the foreign car wrecking yard here closed years ago. Thanks
