    So far what I've found is MM makes all the components to put a 3 link panhard setup in the rear. I thought I read somewhere about using sn95 lowers up front would push out the front, but don't know how far

    I beleive that the 94-04 fronts aee pretty much the same, spindle changed slightly in 96 up setups, but the arms are pretty much the same.

    The 94-98 stang stuff is the same width as 87-88 cars. I beleive only the rear is wider on the 99-04's but i could be wrong.

    The lower a-arms on a on 87-88 car are the same as the 94-04 SN95 Mustangs. You need to look at the distance between the lower a-arm bolt holes on your stock k-member and the SN95 Mustang. If the SN95 is wider then using a k-member for a Mustang of that year would effectively push the wheel out as long as you can compensate for the camber effect. I am pretty sure a SN95 k-member will work in our cars but I do not know that for sure. Mine has a Fox Mustang based Griggs k-member in it.

    Well I can say that 2004 Mustang Cobra front control arms fit the stock 87-88 K-member just like the stock 87-88 arms. I have a set of since discontinued FRPP 03-04 Cobra front control arms on my Thunderbird.

    The '86-88 k member is same as an '04-08 Stang, save for the engine mount bosses.
