swapping to 5 lug?

I know this question is over asked but I'm at the scrap yard and can pull parts. Is going 5 lug as simple as front spindles ( brakes includes) and rear axles (brakes inc) out of a 95 gt. I know ill have to mess with brake lines and stuff but for major parts will this work.

Front rotors from a Lincoln lsc, and the two left rear axles from a bronco I think go right in no problem

Yes they will work. If you get the front spindles get the banjo bolts for the calipers too. That will solve the front brake line problem.

Those front rotors will limit wheel choice.

Also the rear axle is about .75 in wider on each side.

The rear axles from the 94+ are wider than the 79-93. I would recommend you get the Ranger axles so you have the same length. Can't remember what year model it was though. You can also buy them fairly cheap from Latemodel Restoration Supply. Back when I did mine it was like 200 bucks for the set of axles.

Here's a little more detailed idea of what you can do.
