5 lug conversion

  1. 5.0L Tech
    I have a 1990 Fox Convertible 5.0, auto. Just did the ranger axle swap in the rear with new drums and I put the wheels from a 1994-2004 Ford Mustang "Bullitt" on. They are rubbing on the inner fender. What did I do wrong? Thanks for the help!

    help me!! I am trying to do a junkyard 5 lug swap on the 88, I am just curious if I could find a couple explorers and use the axels, (I know it has two different lengths, hence finding two of them) but just wondering if that would work. The reason I want to do an explorer swap is because they...

    I just got a partial 5 lug conversion off craigslist. The conversion is off of a 95 Cobra. I need front calipers. Do I have to get the cobra ones off of LMR, or can i get the calipers off some other car or year mustang? I basically just dont want to spend $400 on calipers. Maybe somebody has...

    I don't have the money to buy the new axels or anything. So can I pull off the parts from other cars in junk yards and stuff and put them on? What all do I need? What cars can I pull from? And if those cars have disc brakes can I use them instead of my drums????

    I want to pull the rear end off a 94 GT at the junkyard. Since i want disk brakes in the back i am pulling the rear end off a 94 GT. OK now i want to run a specific setup. I want to run the 17" 03 Cobra wheels with the 10.5" wide deep dish rear wheels. Will it work out, or will the back wheels...

    Okay now there are so many different ideas to this subject, but I want the correct and right answer. I don't want to spend 2 grand on the conversion. I have a 1990 5.0 GT. I have heard about the Lincoln mark Vii swap the ranger swap and the 94-95 swap. I really just need to know what rear end...

    Hey I just signed up here, and I'm looking for Disc brakes that are cost effective for my 1965 Mustang I'm restoring. Also I would like the car to end up being 5 lug. I want to do the front two first then I will eventually do the rear. I found a set of the front two disc brakes with spindles...

    Can i do a 5 lug swap using parts from other vehicles? Was the 93 cobra 4 or 5 lug? I want a better gear ratio, but I dont want to pay the $500 they want to swap the gears. What other vehicles used the 8.8? did they have better ratios? Are they the right width? Are there any front or rear brake...

    90 mustang LX with 94 front spindles, and rear ranger and arrow star axels, 235 55 17 tires on bullet wheels. On the rear the tires hit the quad shocks, and on the front the rims scrape the control arms when you turn all the way left or right. What should I do?
