I am new to the board, just bought a white 1988 Thunderbird TurboCoupe. Great car and looks awesome. However, I also like the bullitt wheels on the later model Mustangs and wondered if anyone has put some on a FOX t-Bird? My car has ABS as well. Can I get by on the rear with sn95 ('94-98 Mustang rear axles and rotors?) is the 5 lug '94/95 or '96 and up spindle/hub/rotor/caliper the way to go on front? How big of a rear wheel/tire will fit. Should I stay with 17x8 245/45-17 on the front and rear? I have seen the bullitt available in both 17x9 and 17x10.5 that could go on the rear. What do you guys think? I need the help of experts!!! Thanks in advance for the advice and I'm glad I found this site! :D

Use the 94-98 Mustang rear axles.If you go over to turboford.com and search you will be able to find it.
Thanks,

Easiest way is MArk VII front rotors and either Mark VII rear axle and rotors. The stang peices will work as well however the rear rotors are solid and not vented.

Not sure about rim offsets however

If you are going to use the Bullit wheels yo should swap over to athe SN95 frt spindles and brakes. With the MArk rotors you will not be able to run the dust cap with out a spacer.

The Mark VII rear rotors are vented...
As mentioned earlier, the Mustang rear rotors aren't.
I'm gooing with Mark VII stuff myself, when it comes time for that...

Thanks, the local police pound has weekly auctions for abandoned or confiscated vehicles. I have found as many as 2-6 sn95 cars there at any given time. I think I will see if I can find one that has a good visual "crunch" that has what I need but looks bad to others. Maybe I can get the whole car for pretty cheap, get what I want and sell off the rest to offset my investment. I'll let you know how it goes.
