Re: 5 lug conversion

Buying a kit would be the easiest and best, but maybe not the cheapiest way to do it
Here's a good kit but its not cheap.
Ford Racing 5-Lug Cobra Brake Conversion Kits - JEGS

I think Baer Brakes make a cheaper kit and the brakes are probably better.

Re: 5 lug conversion

Here's what you need:

94-95 Spindles
94-04 Front brakes (calipers and rotors) with the correct brake lines (I recommend 99-04 PBRs with MM stainless steel brake lines)
94-95 ball joints pressed into your a-arms
5-lug rear axles and drums (Ford Racing has a kit)
4 more lug nuts
Some wheels
A little hard work
Some beer to drink while performing said hard work

All said and done... it can cost between $500 and $2500 (about what the Baer kit costs) depending on what parts you want to use and how much beer you drink.

Re: 5 lug conversion

go to a junk yard and look for the front spindels off of a 1994-1995 mustang v6, or v8 they are the same.for the back you can put 31 spline 5 lug axles, or get the axles from a ford ranger, i belive you need 2 passenger side axles
