The only way to fit the wheels on the front is to use a thicker spacer, run without the center caps, or maybe not run the dust caps. That's the drawback to the cheap 5-lug conversions. Only way to make it work "right" is to do the SN95 conversion on the front.

As far as the axles go, no, the SN95 axles are too long to use with the drums. You'll need to use the Ranger/Aerostar axles that are the same length as the stock mustang axles. You can also use the Ranger/Aerostar drums, but make sure they are the 9" drums and not the 10" drums.

You'll need two drivers-side axles from a '83-92 Ranger (4-cyl or 3.0L V6 w/ 7.5" axle) or two passenger-side axles from a '86-97 Aerostar. Drums from either of these vehicles will work.

Or do something like this: http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/LRS-1126K

I used a pair of '95 spindles. I swapped my stock 7.5" rear out for a 8.8" from a '98 GT. Brakes are '94-04 Cobra setup.

Your struts will work. Brake hoses will have to be changed to work with the new calipers.
