Default Fox body with 5 lug, ball joint and front end ?'s

As the title states, i'm replacing the ball joints on my fox that has 5 lugs. It looks like its still all 93 parts exept the rotors up front, and as i'm doing the ball joints they don't exactly look like they fit well. There were already 2 washers between the spindle and castle nut before, and it looks like i may need 1 or 2 more with these new ball joints. Anyone else have issues like this??? And whats the trick to getting the wheel bearings out of the rotors? I'm sure i'll come up with more questions tonight while playing in the garage

I think your car has '94+ spindles.
With the stock control arms and balljoints you need spacers (or washers) under the castle nuts when using SN95 spindles.

If they are SN95 spindles the wheel bearings arent part of the rotors and the rotors will just fall off when you pull the calipers off.

question that may relate to this post and i haven't yet found an answer to it... i have an '88 mustang that i installed '94 spindles on. i have the '94 steeda x2 ball joints since i had a '94 mustang as well, but no longer. i was wanting to install the ball joints on my '88 if possible. would that be something that would work?
