about it thx in advance
First congrats on the car.
I'm not certain that big of a wheel tire combo will work. A 275 tire is a squeeze. You are probably looking at some sheet metal bending to get a tire that size to fit.
As far as five lug conversion, I say get a ford HD differential since it will upgrade you to 31 spline, a set of moser 31 spline axles. Since you are in the rearend already go ahead and install a set of 3.73 gears. The cheapest way is to get a couple of ford ranger axles, left sides I believe, an stick them in. You can get those from a junk yard or swap meet. For the front get a set of spindles from a 94-95 GT. Can get them at a junk yard or swap meet as well.
