Hi chaps,

Planning to do some work on the cobra over the winter and one of the issues I'm currently struggling with is axle tramping.

Has anyone any experience of fitting a 4 link system to a hawk 289. I have seen the Frontline Developments system for the MGB which is a bolt on job so I'm told.

It would be great to get anyones experience or comments

Jake

I don't know anyone that has fitted that system. I don't even think it fits a Hawk. I'm looking at retro fitting a Jag back end.

There is a guy on the forum using the name Cobstang who built his own 4 link system for, I think, a BRA rather than a Hawk. It all sounded very interesting.

Very rarely visit, but came on and saw this, spooky !
I did indeed take photos when the topic was discussed here
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1934&p=15542&hilit=four+link#p15542

I have found them, but with the demise of photobucket have no idea how to post pics on here.
