Frankly, if it were my car, I'd spend money updating it to a nice, EFI 5.0 HO with Mass Air and any other nice goodies desired.


My '93 Cobra came with 4-lugs, and they worked just fine! imp

Not sure on your front spindles. I know there is a 5-lug rotor out there that bolts onto the fox spindle but not sure what it is. When we did my brother's car he bought a set off a SN95 car with spindles and it worked. Had to reflare the brake lines to work but that was all. He also had MM control arms with SN95 ball joints already installed.

The Wilwood kit on my car uses the fox spindle but it has to be cut and modified.
