I have a couple of questions I hope someone can answer.
I have an 8.8 factory 3.27 rear.
It has Ford Motorsport Adapters on the ends of the tubes for disc brakes
This rear was 4 lug. I had another rear thats was 5 lug converted, used those axle shafts in the disc rear and I cannot find a rotor that will fit.
I looked at all the rotors listed below
Lincoln Mark vii
Thunderbird turbo coupe
Mustang 94-95 was the closest but still too large in diameter. I work at a machine shop and can turn the outer diameter down and will work perfect but hate to go to all that trouble if there is a rotor that will fit. The calipers I have are explorer I believe, built in emergency brake.
Guys, let me know what yall think.

the rotors are rubbing the calipers, they are rubbing the frame work of the calipers between the pads. I thought about grinding the calipers fo clearance but decided that I would rather modify the rotors than the calipers. With the hydraulic pressure I did not want to run the risk of weakening the frame work of the caliper.
