Just curious,was reading through the 4 to 5 lug conversion and it doesn't say to much on the TC if you want to keep the rear abs disc brakes.
I know i can use mark vii front rotors and that takes care of the front but for the rear it doesn't say much,i know the mark axles are 3/4 in to long on either side and that they use 10.5"rear rotors as oppsed to the TC's unique 10" rears.
I want to keep my ABS and my rear discs,what are my options?
I know hawk has done his and he has his abs rear disc intact so what's the deal?

For the rear the best thing to do is press on the ABS exciter rings from the TC axles onto the SN-95 axles. When we spoke last about my ABS I was using my old TC axles converted to 5 lug. I never installed the ABS rings onto my newer SN-95 axles...just didn't have the time when I did it. I'm not sure on this tidbit but I think the ABS ring on SN-95 axles that come off Mustangs with ABS are the same as the TC's ABS ring.....I've never found a set with them to compare though as my SN-95 axles didn't come with them.

Does the stock rear brake setup still work with the sn-95 stuff?
Basically after installing the exciter rings,just install the axles sn-95 rear rotors and all should work?
So you don't have the abs functional on yours?

All the TC brake stuff bolts on. The rotors require modifying though: They need to be drilled to 5 bolt (you can do this yourself), you need to open up the hub of the rotor to fit the hub diameter of the SN-95 axles (it's larger) You also need to have the axle flanges trimmed down as they will not fit into the rotor hat of the TC rotor. The latter two are best accomplished at a machine shop on a lathe. The alternative is to install all SN-95 rear brakes.
