Hello All,

I hope I’m posting this in the right place since I’m using my phone.
I am dropping in a rear end off of an 1996 explorer that had been modified to fit on to my 1965 Mustang.

here is my dilemma,my mustang is 4 lug all around. The beefed up rear end is 5 lug and I would like to keep my current wheels which are 4 lug.

I am considering buying new 4 lug axles but i am having trouble finding disc rotors that match the current setup on the differential. Explorer rotors are 11” and I can only find 10” 4 lug rotors. Not sure if the 1 inch difference is a problem

my other option is wheel spacers that convert from 5 lug to 4 lug.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

1965 mustang. Originally a 6 calendar. Currently has a 347 stroker with T5 transmission with a bad differential with drums.

Gonna need real brakes right?
