Default Foxbody 5 lug conversion

I currently have 4 lug on my foxbody and want to change to a five lug I was told ranger rear axles fit but for what year and what spindles do I use I'm trying to get away with not spending $1,200 on the conversion that are in the magazines , I got an excellent deal on new bullit wheels that's the reason for change

You know, to keep things simple, you could always go and snag a complete 5 lug from a 94/95 Mustang. This would also swap over to disc brakes at the same time.

Go to the Tech section of the forum, Essential Mustang Tech Discussions stickied at the top, and click "Drum to Disc Conversion". It'll give you all the info you need.

1994 - 1995 Front Spindles and you can use any Calipers and matching Rotors from 1994 - 2004.
