Now as for the other question of 5 lug conversions. The most popular in
the street rod scene s the Granada 5 lug 11" rotor swap. Using an
aftermarket disc brake mounting bracket, either late mustang 4 cyl
calipers or GM Monte Carlo Calipers and the aforementioned rotors you
can gain several benefits. One, a 40% increase in brake surface area.
Two, 5 lug front tire/wheel como choices, three, easier parts
replacement due to more common car donor parts. Three, the aftermarket
offers these rotors CHEAP and in any 5 lug pattern you want so if a '99
vette wheel is the look you want just order your rotors in GM 5 lug and
go. Drawbacks, well in most cases this is a blessing for newer wheels,
but the granada conversion moves the mounting surface for the wheel out
3/4" to the outside. SO, you actually gain in offset which allows you
more contemporary wheel style choices. and by using the H&R adapter kit
we can do almost anyhting and any wheel you want.
The rear for 5 lug can be accomplished several ways. Redrilling the
axles and drums is the basic soution. have a machine shop weld p the 4
lug patttern and go to the 5 lug pattern of choice. Next is the bone
yard aproach. Any 64-66 Mustang is the same drum to druma dn perch to
perch measured axle as a MII. Meaning that the axles will directly
replace for length and fit. find a 5 lug 64-66 Mustang or 63-67 falcon,
or newer Versilles amnd get the axles, brake backing plates, drums and
shoes and you are done. NOW note if you do the bone yard approach to
make good notes of what you have because n the future you will order
barke parts for the donor car not the MII. Lastly is the rearen swap.
the Versilles disc brake 9" is the rear os first choice, bolt in
convience, drear disc stopping power and easy Emergency brake adaptaion.
understand though that the 9" is heavy, and inefficeint. Also, the 9"
really only offers about a 25% increase in overall power handling
capacity over a well built 8" so I only recommend going to the 9" in
extreeme cases and stilll would weight using an 8.8" from a newer
