Which spindles for my application?

I've got a 92 GT with Cobra brakes and 94-95 spindles. I'm 80% done with a 03 Cobra drivetrain/interior conversion. To make the 03 Cobra motor fit, I modifed the 03 K-member to fit in the 92 and used the 03 rack and pinion. I have MM Fox tubular control arms with 94up ball joints and MM tapered pin tie rod end kit. Which spindles will be best, the 94 or 03? I have both. I think the 03 spindles will be better with the 03 K-member but want to confirm.

youd want the 96-04 spindles. the k member goes with the spindles. fox and 93-94 kmember gets 94-95 spindles, newer k member get the newer spindles.

Thanks, confirms what I suspected.

Another question. Does MM make a strut tower brace that will clear 03 Cobra engine on a Fox Mustang?

Mike,

If you PM me your e-mail address, I can send you some photos of an MM STB for an 03-04 Cobra sitting on a Fox chassis car.

The differences between the 96-04 and 94-95 spindles are outlined here:

There are several differences.
