foxbody guys: brakes/spindles on my capri
just yesterday i picked up an 83 mercury capri id had my eye on for the last 5 years or so for 200 bucks, fully intending to throw the 468 im building in it. however this car has the most terrible stock drivetrain ever, with a v6, aod, and a 7.5 inch rear, and tiny v6 worthy brakes so its all getting tossed for beefier stuff.
Question: are the spindles on this car the same as an 87 mustang? i fully intend to swap the rearend for that of a turbocoupe/xr7 8.8 with 5 lug, and im going to change out the front brakes for those of a late 80s lincoln mark VII.
i know for a fact 87-93 mustangs have compatible spindles, i just need to know if the earlier fox stangs/capris had the same ones.
also, any chances of town car front spindles/brakes being able to fit? theres a town car i can get for like 50 bucks... ill just yank what i need and scrap the thing if i can use any of it.
