Default Budget 5 lug swap question.

I have read many threads but havent found this answer so here goes....
First off I have two options for the front as far as budget swap goes, my car is an 84 GT so that allows the ranger rotor swap, I also have a 92 K member with spindles, etc, so that allows the MK7 swap.
My question applies to either one, which inner and outer bearings and seals do I use with these?
According to the local parts store the ranger bearings are different from the mustang ones, unless they looked something up wrong.....

That's the swap I'm planning eventually but parts are a bit harder to come by around here.

i ordered my whole kit from MPS auto salvage off ebay. its a bit more expensive but saves you the hassle of looking around. and if you just need certain parts of the kit, call them and they will work with you.
