87-93 5.0 spindles

Hey I am doing a newer brake swap on my 79 mustang and i was wondering if anyone knows where I could get ahold of a pair of 87-93 v8 mustang spindles? They're a lot harder to find than I expected. I'm planning on using 81-81 lincoln mark calipers and rotors, has anyone here done this swap? Anything I should watch out for?

Thanks, Derek

It's a real basic swap, not a big deal at all. Ebay normally has the spindles. Are you staying with four lug? If not, it's a great time to swap over to the five lug stuff. The only concern you may have is the stock master cylinder volume. I would upgrade the master also, the pistons in the Lincoln calipers are huge. If you have any questions, let me know... I have done this swap more then once.

Yeah I'm going to 5 lug and also putting qa1 struts on it. I have willwood rear disc brakes and I'm still debating what master cylinder i want to use. I was looking at the strange and aerospace masters though. I looked on ebay and didn't find any spindles and also called local salvage yards with no luck, that's why I figured i would ask on this forum.

Gotcha. I personally went with the Wilwood master, and have their rear kit as well. Depending on your wheel and tire combo, I would strongly suggest going with the 13" Cobra stuff. If you shop around you can do it very reasonable. I would have, but already had a few sets of four lug wheels and tires.

Hey mark I am interested. Could you find out how much he wants for the spindles? I'm not interested in the rotors I already have some. Where are you located?

Thanks a lot, Derek

Thanks boss 429 that's good to know. I'll probably go that route. Hey mark I'm in southwest Ohio so shipping would probably be pretty cheap to me, that would work out great. Thanks for checking this out for me. :lol:

87-93 5.0 spindles

Derek,
Can't you put the '94-up stuff on there as long as you use the hub assembly along with it? That would already be your 5-lug pattern and also way more available. I believe they also did away with the smaller brakes on non-GT's. I think all were the same except Cobras and Mach 1's. Lee

The 94 and up stuff will work if you use the hub assemblies, brackets etc. The only concern is that it changes the track width a littlle so you need to take that into consideration with your wheel and tire choice.

5.0 spindles

I just decided to go with the 87-93 stuff. I like to keep the tires tucked into the wheelwells as far as i can.

FYI, the 87-88 T-bird Turbo coupe spindles are the same as the 87-93 Mustang V-8 ones.I ended up buying a totalled off 88 Turbo coupe from my local insurance company when I was looking for spindles and I parted out what I didn't need.
