Step 2: Spindles
The next step of the process is spindles. When researching SN95 disc brake conversions, a big topic is what spindle to run. There are two major types which are 94-95 and 96-04. The 1994-1995 Mustang spindle is highly sought after as it kept the track width within 3mm of an 87-93 V8 Fox Body spindle to keep the suspension geometry close to the original. The 1996-2004 Mustang spindle steering arm increased the track width by 8mm.. Also, when using the 96-04 spindles, Bumpsteer issues can be heightened. Check out our full listing of Bumpsteer kits
to fix this problem if it arises. The spindle change is one of the main reasons Fox owners choose an SN95 brake conversion as it eliminates the factory-sealed bearing rotor in favor of a separate hub and rotor setup. This provides nearly limitless brake and wheel options the factory 4-lug setup could never offer! Ball joint spacers are optional in this step. If you are using Fox Body ball joints, you will need these, but if you use 94-04 ball joints, you will not. New spindles are not available right now, but check out our infographic showing the differences between these spindles, as well as a few related products!
