Don't know what type of disc brakes I should be getting for my 5 lug conversion!!

Hey guys I don't know if anyone has had this problem, I bought a 92 notchback with a 5 lug conversion, my front brakes and pads needs replacement but I can't work on my car since I don't have a garage, and I don't know what rotors and pads to buy before taking it to the shop, does anyone know what kind of rotors and pads my car needs? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I currently have 18 inch saleen wheels on it if that helps..thanks guys!

Well start off by measuring the disk.


They make 5 lug 11" replacement discs. Many use the SN front brakes.

Just as a safety measue you should be going to the sn95 front setup. The 99-04 dual piston gt brakes are the budget option but go for the 94-04 Cobra/Bullitt/Mach setup if you can. Raybestos rotors are the best "white box" rotors I have used and a good ceramic pad to keep the front wheels from getting covered in brake dust.

I took it to a shop and they were having a hard time figuring out what type of rotors and pads to order since I'm not sure what kind of setup I have, the mechanic told me he ordered some parts and hopefully they are the ones that are needed on my notchback, i bought the car with the 5 lug conversion already that's why I'm kinda struggling

It probably has sn95 spindles and brakes. Most of them are done that way.

The shop called me today and told me he tried ordering 4 different brake set ups and none fit..but he ended up telling me they could only do the front brakes, which is good for now since those were the worst of the all the brakes, but I'll take pix of the rear when I get it back, it could maybe be the sn95 brakes just not 100 percent sure

So he found out and got my front brakes done, which were off a Lincoln mark 7, i held off on the rear brakes which he said are different from the front, he said he can do em just let him know a few days in advance so he can research and see what brakes it needs
