This may have been discussed many times before but I couldn't find it ( internet challenged1).

Can the front disks from a B be used on a Ford 8.8 rear axle? I'm pretty sure I'm going to have Moser do the axles when I'm ready but I'd like to use the front B brakes on the rears and I'm not sure if the bolt patterns match up.

If not, can Moser make adjustments to accomodate?

The front MGB discs are bolted to the front hub, so unlikely candidates for an 8.8.
Ford OEM calipers and discs (typically 10.5" dia) are available for the 8.8 and Moser can accomodate any bolt pattern that you want - Ford 5 x 4.5" or even MGB 4 x 4.5".
Note the rotor double bolt pattern......

Here's my 8.8 rear discs: [tempusfugitgarage.com]

$375 complete with rotors, loaded calipers (not the greatest pads, I already replaced mine), mounting brackets, parking brake cables, all the hardware, and instructions that are actually clear. Outfit is called The RIght Stuff but I think you can also get the kit through Summit Racing.
