Will the hub from 2000 mustang irs rear end swap with the sc? I looking for a cheap way to switch to 5 lug rear. At least can I use the hub spindle if the complete hub wont fit?

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.

Hate to disagree but option "B" works fine with the early model calipers as long as you don't let the pads wear down too far. I have had this set-up (abet using George Davenport relocation brackets) for 5-6 years and 80K - 100K miles with no issues. I know it was the first mod I installed on the car with George's help but don't remember what year it was...so the reason for the waffling on the specific timeframe and mileage.

To use the Mustang front hubs, don't you need 93+ spindles?

Probably. I know you need the later spindles for any brake upgrades.

Bumping a dead thread here.

In the rear if you choose to go with getting the hubs redrilled in 5x4.5, do you have to use (redrilled obv) t-bird rear rotors or will mustang rotors work?

Also, has anyone tried using 05+ mustang front calipers? Will they bolt in?

I dont know if the 2005 stuff fits but probably not.

The rears if you redrill the bird hubs you will need to drill the stock rotors, so it has a matching hub bore on the center. You will have to match the hub from the proper year to the rotors from the proper years. For example the hub bore on the late bird rotors are smaller then the earlier birds. I would redrill a late set of hubs so you can source cheaper rear rotors. The earlier rotors are more expensive FYI.
You can redrill the bird rotors at home with a home drill, since the center will align it and thats whats important or have the guys that redrilled the hubs to drill a set of rotors for you.
On mine I used the front mustang rotors to trace and drill the holes where they need to be.

I'm 95% sure 05-up Mustang brakes won't fit without adapter brackets.

Damn. I have been eying a set of Brembo calipers from an 07 GT500, but if they don't fit then I'm not going to bother, I don't have the tools necessary to build a relocation bracket.

There is a kit available to adapt the GT-500 brakes to SN95 spindles, so presumably it could be made to work on the 93-up MN12 spindles as well. However, it puts a spacer between the wheel bearing hub and the rotor so that there is sufficient room for an adapter that is not a completely FUBAR design. On an SN95 Mustang, it's not a big deal, you just use S197 Mustang offset wheels. But on an MN12, you would need very high offset wheels to keep the tires under the fenders when you take in to account the 12 mm or so that you would lose with the rotor spacers.

THESE (http://www.vintagevenom.com/sn95-f14-stage-ii-big-brake-kit) might be better, but you'd need big wheels to clear them.

Yes, you would need at least 18" wheels, with very large spoke clearance, to go over those brakes ... same deal as the GT-500 stuff.

Maximum motorsports offers an adapter kit as well to use the gt500 rims and calipers/rotors. It comes with spacers to properly offset the wheels wrong for our application. But Im sure the spacer can be machined down for a perfect offset. Im just not willing to be the guini pig.

That being said I find gt500 and brke setups relatively cheap.

they didnt make 2000 mustang cobras ;) went from 1999 to 2001...stopped production late 99 to fix intake manifold issues along with other things....but 99-04 hubs/spindles will work!

Damon, that kit from MM looks identical to the Vintage Venom kit that I posted the link for ...
