want to convert to 5 lug so i have a wider selection of wheels...BUT I also don't want to go bank on a conversion kit. Not necessarily looking for larger brakes, car stops good now...anyone have any ideas?

Lincoln MKVII front rotors w/o ABS, use the MK bearings and seals, and Ranger left drivers side axles and drums. The right sides are too short, so you need to find two Rangers. If your lucky you can find Rangers with 10" drums so you can take the drums,backing plates and all. Easiest swap out there.

If you want the rims that bad, do the coversion.

If you go the disc/drum swap either junkyard or the kit 50resto sells you are still limited to what rims. For example, the Ford racing 95 cobra Rs will not fit on the back the offset is different. They used to make some that were just for this conversion, but discontinued them.  My suggestion would be to call the company sellin the rims  and ask them if this route will fit them.

True, 500 bucks may be a bit high, but that was with brand new axles. Just not sure if I want to go to the junk yard to pull the parts.

Blue Oval will sell the kit for $295.00 plus the shipping $59.00. I guess it will depend if I want to save a 100 bucks, or how valuable my time is to me.

will the blue oval kit help increase the wheels options?
