3-LINK REAR SUSPENSION

Developed specifically for the MGB, this suspension setup will transform the handling, especially when combined with our front suspension setup. We are much better at building cars than we are at taking pictures. We will, however, take a complete set of the 3-link suspension when it is completed on Dan Master's car.
