4 lug 5lug question

Whats the big difference in change from 4 to 5 lug? Seems like a big job and big money. I've noticed the rim selection would be a lot larger. And ive also noticed it might be a good opportunity switch out drum and go with rear disc brakes.

yup, you just answered it yourself
as for big money - it doesn't have to be. depends whether you pick aftermarket or scrap yard route.

+1, also brake selection. Aka, upgrading the fronts to 13 in. Cobra brakes, or even something bigger.

'94 Laser red 'vert. Still a 5-oh... for now

Cobra Brakes were hands down the best mod I did to my car, night and day difference, like driving a totally different car!

Will pieces from a 95-98 mustang work? Im not really sure if they are five lug anyway, but if they are, then this mustang is always at the local junkyard. And so are the newer mustangs...
