Re: 5-Lug finally done right.
Reply #27 –
Thank you so much for doing this write up. I was coming in here to ask the question about the 5 lug swap. I installed a 2003 GT diff into my 88 thunderbird. I was able to install 94 rear brake hoses and match them to the turbo coupe rear brake lines. I also had to drill the diff to mount the brake distribution block.
On the front I am going to swap the inner and outer tie rods to SN parts but my brake set up I am using is 95 spindles and 99 dual piston PBR calipers. so 11" rotors but better calipers. I did some research and found that my master cyl has a 1" bore and the Cobra master cyl has a 1-1/16" bore. Should I be ok to run the stock master cyl from the Thunderbird with the SN set up since it was all running good with the turbo coupe brakes I installed a few years ago?
