I have a 91 mustang gt that I bought without a motor and trans. Bought the motor and trans off my close friend out of his 93 mustang. He gave me the 5 lug conversion and I'm having issues with the front end. So the caliper is a double piston, slotted rotors and new pads but when I press the brake it does not release on only the front end. I took it apart and noticed when I press the piston in all the way the caliper barely fits over the pads and rotor. Now it seems that the caliper really has no room to depress if it that snug but I could be wrong. Any one have any thoughts

Will need to identify the parts. Possible you have a mismatch of components.

Can you take some pics?

Any part numbers or ID marks could also be useful.
In a related thought, which spindles are in there can make a difference with drivability. If you can take a picture of the spindle from the inside of the car that includes the tie rod arm end, I bet we can help ID that as a part of the 5 lug conversion.

I'll be back in tow soon and I will take some pics. I'll check into that
