Re: 5 lug conversion from 03 Cobra and 98 GT

Basically, all you'll be able to use from the 03 Cobra is the brakes (rotors and calipers). The rest of it won't work. You need spindles off a 94-95. 96-98 spindles will also work if you are only going to be running 8" wide wheels. I believe there are clearance issues if you go any larger.

Also, the struts may or may not work. I'm not 100% sure on that one. I think I've read that they will though.

I've got 255s on a 9" wheel on mine. They rub at full lock, but it's not too bad. You could probably put 275s on there and sacrifice a little more turning radius. Mike (Silverstangboy) had some on his car for a while.

I found this, 79-93 Disk Brake Upgrade but I know that Baer Brake Systems makes a complete kit thats suppose to be very good, but I can't find it on their site.
