Im looking to swap my car over to 5-lug, mainly for the benefit of WAY better wheel choices. Now i know that you can go the cheaper route and just swap over later model spindles and brakes. But im looking to do it the more expensive way i guess LOL.

What will be the best parts to buy to do this and what all will i need? Looking to do wilwood or aerospace brakes front and rear. Looking for your guys experiance on the best brake kits and spindles? also axles and a rear brake setup, all brackets and everything i will need to do a COMPLETE swap from the stock 4-lug setup.

I will most likely buy used stuff to keep the cost down some, ive seen some good deals on here while browsing.

Thanks, Bryan

Well you'll need V8 spindles,and I suggest the aerospace kit,you gotta modify your spindles though for the calipers I believe.

As far as I know aerospace is basically a bolt on deal,other than cutting the spindle which isn't a big problem. I could be completely wrong,someone else should chime in.

As far as I know with any brake kits, you have to drill and tap the three dust shield bolt holes for the caliper brackets and cut off the stock caliper mounting arms. I prefer Wilwood

if you have v8 spindles, you can use 88 Lincoln Mark VII / SVO rotors.
