I should clarify... I handed the alignment specs FROM Maximum Motorsports, yet they failed to follow them. I had to bring back the car because it was outside their own "Specified Range" listed on the sheet and then they basically tell me they've done all they can. I discuss this thoroughly in my CONCLUSION above.I don't understand, you say the car tracks and brakes straight, but you sat the alignment is underwhelming? What is it doing to make you feel that? "Underwhelming" is just what I want an alignment to be. When I did my 95, I replaced everything, control arms, struts, tie rods, inner & outer, drop springs and MM caster camber plates, even hubs, I just put the CC plates in the middle of travel to get to the alignment shop. When it was done, I could see the before and after numbers on the sheet, but, honestly, couldn't tell that it drove any different.
Nope, only had to lay once, but after two alignments it's still not right. The fact that the caster camber plate "cups" were installed 180 degrees backwards may have affected the alignment, but they still never bothered to align the wheel slightly toe in (-0.10) as requested by me.Ok, I see, I was typing while you were posting.
So, you ended up getting it aligned twice? Hope you didn't have to pay twice, ouch!
Thanks. Removing the rear isolator helped. I think getting a good symmetrical alignment will help as well.Very rare to find a fox with all 4 wheels at the same plane. Even MM states that setting ride height is a crapshoot. You'll get 3 in a certain spot and one will be way out.
These cars flex just looking at them wrong
Absolutely. And of course take advantage of any tunnel or freeway noise barrier wall to hear that beautiful 5.0 sound.Agree 100%. Everytime I get in my car, it feels so small and low compared to a big SUV. I drive it like a motorcycle. Keep moving and don't linger in blind spots or alongside and always scan the rear view
Question on the 94-95 spindles - these need to be SN95 or just mustang of those years?You don't want 96-04 spindles. Look for 94-95 on ebay. All the calipers and brackets , master can all be bought on rock auto. Axles can be bought separate too. E brake cables can be bought separate as well as all the brake line parts MM makes.
A little home work you can have all that stuff ordered from separate places.
5 Lug swap list
-5 Lug axles ( i used moser foxbody length with 99-04 disc flange to keep fox track width)
-Master cyl ( see notes)
-Booster 93 cobra
-13inch rotors (front)
- 94-04 gt calipers (rear)
- 94-04 gt rotors (rear )

Maximum MOTORSPORTS parts

-Rear brake line kit - MMBK13R
-Adjustable Prop valve - BPV-1
-Stock prop valve disable plug - MM-2450-A
-93 cobra booster ( keeps threads the same for the hardware ) - a1 cardone - 5473155
-North racecars rear caliper brackets for use with sn95 gt calipers . Cobra and gt caliper is the same cobra would accept bigger rotor . You want the small rotor so you can get 15 inch wheel on at the track .
-Parking brake cable- center (50resto)- M2810a
Rear cables - (50resto) - LRS-2635D
"If you run the 13inch rotors with cobra calipers up front you will need 94-95 cobra master cyl -15/16th bore p/n- BMC-4 with MMBAK-8 adapters to tie into factory hard line " ( Max Motorsport part numbers )
If you run 99-04 gt dual piston front caliper so you can run a 15 inch wheel up front you would run 93 cobra master cyl ( 1inch bore) -BMC-2 with line adapter kit MMBAk-3 (max Motorsport part numbers )
Question on the 94-95 spindles - these need to be SN95 or just mustang of those years?
If you already have a bump steer kit, tie rod ends and bushings to relocate the steering rack, installed can they be utilized to eliminate the bumpsteer if using 96-04 spindles?You can certainly use 96-04 spindles, but the tie rod end mounting location is lower because ford dropped the relative location of the steering rack those years. If oyu run them on your setup, you get bumpsteer, which is highly annoying.
Yes - reading through it again for the third time. A lot of epic info and great detail, but throughout the thread it goes a little left and right - so just want to make sure I understand 1006 before buying.They are sn95 . But from 94-95 they are physically different and the closest to Stock fox track width .
