True, especially if you just do the Lincoln front rotor swap and rear axles. But that severly limits your wheel choice. Realistically, people are gonna end up spending a lot more. I think my 94-95 spindles alone cost me $100 from the junkyard. Then I bought some PBR front calipers with rotors (don't remember how much I paid), stainless steel brake lines to work w/ the calipers ($80), had a SN95 balljoints pressed in the front LCAs (instead of doing the whole spacer thing, pretty cheap though), the 5-lug Ranger axle FRPP kit ($200) and probably a few other small things I'm leaving out.
It can get pretty expensive if you don't have a hook-up on cheap parts, or if you're like me and try to use new parts whenever possible...
If you really wanna stick with 4-lug though, there are some wheels out there... they just aren't easy to find. I know Latemodel Restoration Supply
has some. There's one wheel manufacturer who makes several 4 lug versions of newer Mustang wheels, but I cannot for the life of me remember who it is. I've looked and couldn't find it...
Anyway, the point is that 4-lug wheels are out there, it'll just take a little digging to find. Also, I'd still highly recommend the 5-lug swap route... but I understand if it's a daily driver. Still, you could probably get the whole thing done in a weekend with a little hard work. Just be prepared to spend a little extra money.
