What is the difference between a 4 lug suspension vs. a 5 lug??? I was under the impression that only 6cyl's had 4 lugs but i see alot of 5.0s out there with 4 lugs is there any disadvantage to the 4 lug suspension???

The late model doesn't go with the 4 lug is a 6 cylinder model. The older cars, I've seen like that but not the late model.

The 5 lug gives better clamping force on the wheels, giving it more strength than the 4 lug. Overall, nothing wrong with the 4 but 5 is better. The 5 lug pattern gives you more wheel options too.

NP, I actually forgot about them myself but got to thinking back when I was in High School and a kids dad bought him a brand new 84 SVO, those 5 lugs were still hidden in my memory LOL!
