pain in my *** 5lug

ok so i bought 94-95 specific spindles and to find out its not going to work due to the fact that the rotors and calipers wont match the ****ing 94-95 spindle..(damn those lincoln spindles/ hubs) theres some extensions thats needed for the calipers and new brake hoses.. god damn it.. if i new this i woulda saved my ****in money to buy those complete kits.. any suggestions?

Yeah, you can't use the Lincoln stuff with the 94-95 spindles. The whole point of the 94-95 spindles is to be able to use a better solution than the Lincoln stuff.

Find some front rotors and calipers off a 99-04 Mustang from a junkyard. They should be dirt cheap. They'll fit with no modifications and greatly improve your braking too.

Re: pain in my *** 5lug

whoever has v-8 foxbody spindles and accessories..(4 lug) let me know and i will take them off your hands....my 92 coupe began life as a four cylinder. imagine my modified motor and those micromachine rotors and drums...they look like toys sittin behind my pony wheels. wit the four cyl. that ***** stopped on a dime...wit the v-8 it loks all four up and just slides..maybe i just need to retrofit an a.b.s. system...lol...anyway if anyone has v-8 4lug stuff they are willn to let go for cheap let me know....i figure i will be taken my life in my own hands once the 9psi unit exits the box and enters my engine bay.

Re: pain in my *** 5lug

i'd consider going 5-lug on those as well, BUT if you don't wanna change your pony rims you could jump on the classifieds here and a few other larger fox pages (like corral) and find some stock stuff pretty quick.


im going to be upgrading to 4 wheel disk, and use either dual PBR 99+ brakes in the front or just go cobra... i'll be needing alot of brake soon.

Re: pain in my *** 5lug

Re: pain in my *** 5lug

i think u will be happy wit the stock gt brakes....but u will be excited and 100% satisfied with the cobra....just my opinion...if u can afford the cobra i would get those....plus i think u would get awsome performance cause your coupe is lighter than a cobra. i think our coupes weigh 3,010lbs.

If you can afford the Cobras, get them. But don't worry about it too much, because the PBRs do a great job of stopping the much lighter foxes.
