Now im not even sure i need to buy anything at all as i already have my 95's front suspension complete and another 96 bird with a complete suspension... im just looking to find out what the differences ARE. i realize they are different, but how.

There are two styles. 89-92 and 93-97. If you are swapping between 95 and 96 there are no differences.

ok. let me explain.

my bird is airbagged and lays out on the subframe and body mounts with skid plates welded to them of course. (for those of you who dont like what ive done please dont bash me, i love these cars just as much as you do...just like mine a little different)

i know of a couple of other tbirds both 89-92's that have basically the same front suspension setup that i do but mine is a 95.
i am having issues with my front upper balljoints binding at "full drop"
Now im wondering if the spindles on the 89/92's are any different as far as the length of the spindles is concerned, or if maybe where the control arms mount to the spindle is any different.

basically im wondering if switching to the earlier spindles will help with my balljoint angles or if ill have to go with custom fabbed control arms to angle the joints better.

Spindle mounting points are the same for all years ( Upper control arm and Lower control arm ) .. The only major difference that was mentioned above is that the early ones have a little more Offset - so your wheels will stick out a tiny bit further, which is why some people have Wheels that fit great on a set of 89-92 spindles, and when they switch to the 93's the wheels rub on the spindle. Downside for the early model spindles is they have a big piece of metal cast in it that prevents installing a larger brake Rotor.

This is an old, small picture, but it will hopefully be of use here:



Also, just to add a little more info, the 89-90 hub diameter where the rotor slides onto the hub is slightly larger than the 91+ versions, IIRC.
