Well, I sold the Bullits so now I've got some money to spend and a good excuse to get some Weld Pro Stars. I transplanted the front spindles and brakes and the whole rearend with brakes out of an '03 Mach 1 into my modest little 89 5.0 LX vert back in January.

My question to you is about backspacing. Apparently the Bullit wheels have a whopping 5.72" of backspacing. They are 17X8. So should the Pro Stars which are 15X8 have 4.5" or 5.5" of backspacing? What do you guys think?

Did you just take the brakes off the Mach1 and put them into your housing with SN95 Axles or did you swap the entire Mach1 Housing? SN95 are 3/4" wider per side, and the 99-04s are like 1.5" wider per side! I see you having serious fit problems if you took the entire housing.
