    Looking for a new suspension setup
    The one I'm looking at states multi link only.
    Would this also be OK for solid beam torsion setup.

    What's the difference. As the fronts will be the same.

    You are trying to bang a square peg into a round hole, you cannot fit multi link components to a car that has beam suspension.

    The bottom mount on the rear shock is wider on the multilink suspension and will not fit in the torsion beam mount.

    If it’s a 4drive or more than 150ps it’s the independent set up. Everything else is the torsion beam.
