It will bolt up but i believe it is slightly wider than the fox rear ends. Also it will have disc brakes instead of drums and will also be 5 lug instead of 4. So you may need to make some brake line modifications on the rear. If you go this route i would also swap the front to 5 lug but obviously you will have to factor in a new set of wheels

I already have a 5 lug all around I just wanted to upgrade my brakes. Aren't the 1998 gt's equipped with 10.5' vented rotors?
