What all am I going to need to do this swap? I just got one HELL of a deal on a trade. I traded a guy a set of chrome Pony wheels off my Mustang for a set of '06 Mustang GT wheels that are polished aluminum 18x9" I believe. They look almost like a Bullitt wheel if some of you aren't familiar with them. I already set these wheels up beside my TBird and they look amazing. Now just need to do the hub swap. I have seen it done on alot of Birds and need some info on how to do it and what I need. Thanks :D

SN95 Mustang front hubs, 99-04 Mustang GT front rotors (if you're reusing the stock front calipers, new front hub retaining nuts. For the rear you'll need 99-04 Cobra rear hubs, hub retaining nuts and I recommend replacing the wheel bearings if they're not very new. As for brakes, you can either A) redrill the stock rear rotors to 5x4.5 or B) get 99-04 Cobra rear rotors and Fast Ed's caliper relocation brackets. Note that option B does not work well with 89-92 Tbird calipers; the 93-97 calipers are a better choice.

If your car is an 89-91 you will also need to get the front spindles from a 92 or newer tbird with ABS etc as the old spindles won't work with the calipers.

That's actually 93-up on the front spindles.

Wow this may set me back a few dollars! :eek: Maybe I will just Ebay the Mustang wheels and use that money to buy a set of actual Cobra wheels or something similar with the T-Bird bolt pattern.
