I have been told that Consul Classic Capri struts are a straight swap on a 100e if we want to upgrade to disc brakes. Is this correct, or will i have to do any other mods?

my mate fitted mk1/2 escort hubs/discs on 100e struts using a combination of 100e and escort bearings. make caliper brackets and you're sorted.

They are not a straight swap but can be made to fit (badly) . Everyone says to use them because that's what everyone used to use. Classic / Capri its are hard to come buy and expensive to overhaul so personally I'd make Capri or Escort fit as spares will be cheaper and more readily available for longer. For info Capri legs are 2" shorter than Escort legs with same rate springs.
