I've tried the search and haven't found this to be addressed.

What axles can I use to get 5 lugs in the turbocoupe rearend that I have. I don't mind the extra width because the wheels i'm using are in too far with the standard width axle. I just want to replace the axles and get new rotors. Will sn95 axles work with sn95 rotors??

Thanks Forum,
Lee

not positive on the sn95 axle swap but I think so the turbocoupe rearend is the same width as the sn95 thats why I think they would work, are the rotors the same diameter also? Richard Oben probably knows

I have the stock width t-bird rear. I used stock calipers for it and had the stock axles and discs redrilled for a 4.5" on 5 pattern. This set up should work fine but I will upgrade(eventually) to SN95 axles and cobra discs. I hope this helps somewhat.
Cheers, Chris

I have the same setup, use either driver side Ranger axles or passenger side Aerostar axles. I just purchased the FMS kit from Forte's, it's alot easier than climbing around junkyards!

We do the bird unit all the time. Swap out the axles to the ranger and redrill the t bird rotors with our 4 lug bracket or use the cobra Rotor and our bracket with the SN95 stuff. For the narrow track. For the SN95 track the turbo coupe housing can be used with the SN95 stuff just as long as you get the SN95 mounting bracket. IF you do not change the axle bracket the shorter axles will not fit. Hope this helps. Cheers Richard.
