Question:
I'm looking at upgrading my front suspension of my to-be-acquired 1959 Bugeye as well as upgrading to front disc brakes. Can I skip some suspension upgrade components that might already be in the brake upgrade kit?
Answer:
Hi ,

The suspension components will be the same; the lower A-arms, the coil springs, and the lever shocks. None of that changes from a drum brake car when doing the conversion to disc brakes. The stub axles (and king pins) are changed but the actual suspension parts stay the same. Upgrades can be done, of course, but aren't required when doing the conversion. You can always do a tube shock conversion later and maybe change the coil springs if you're not digging the ride.

Hope this helps, Mini Mania
 
 
 
 
Question:
Other than a larger master cylinder,is there anything else I need to convert my 1960 bugeye, drums to disc brakes? Do you know of any videos showing the conversion?
Answer:
You don't necessarily have to change the dual master on your Bugeye when converting to front discs. Disc brakes were standard on the Spridgets from 1962 onward and the dual (clutch and brake) master cylinder was retained through 1966 (though the cylinder bores were reduced from 7/8" to 3/4"). I would ask on the Healey forums as this is a common upgrade for Bugeyes.

I don't know of any videos out there but you can always search YouTube.
