5 lug conversion

Anyone know who makes a 5 lug conversion lot for the front and rear for an 86 GT? I've been looking on late model resto and American muscle and only found them for 87+

Plenty of rear conversions for your car out on the web. Hit local pull-a-part or boneyard and pick up spindles, caliper brackets and calipers from a sn95 chassis car. Id recommend grabbing new pads rotors and brake hoses from parts store or wherever you buy your autoparts.

Thx man. Well right now it needs a bit of body work and a new floor pan. Once that's all done , I'd like to get the 5 lug, better tranny and I'm looking at converting to a maf and maybe slapping on a turbo. My 08 has a kenne bell , so it would be fun to have a turbo stang and a supercharged stang and maybe me and the wife can goto the strip and race each other lol. How about you man? What's your plans?

Man, yeah that would be sick!
Well right now it has Trickflow heads, Trickflow intake manifold, BBK CAI, shorty headers, b303 cam, bassani offroad X pipe, maf, 70mm throttle body, and yeah thats about it
My future plans for it are maybe a termi swap or just a turbo kit, short thro shifter and lowering springs are prob gonna be the next thing ill do to it.
