Fox\SN95 front end swap?

Having just acquired a four cylinder, automatic 1987 LX trunk car I realized I have no wheels or tires this size BUT I have plenty of 5 lug wheels for my 94 GT, a conversion has come to mind and need to ask a few questions.
I have the COMPLETE unbolted K member from under my 1994 SN-95 Mustang. Rotors, hubs, calipers, hoses, struts the whole assembly. question is,
Is there any reason not to swap out the complete K member when I change the engine and trans???
I am wanting the 5 lug capability and the better brakes of the SN-95, is there any geometry differences for the better or worse???
This will end up being a TT car,,, maybe CMC???

Any ideas

Thanks

it will be a direct bolt in.... the only difference is the control arms are a little longer on the sn95 so it will put your front track width a little wider... other then that it will fit perfectly...

assumptions on my part...

I had assumed the fox k member had a lower rack mounting position than the SN-95, which would cause me some bumpsteer grief later on...
I could just bolt the control arms and spindles on the fox K member But just thought the whole assembly would work better that trying to firure out what works later.


YES, I do have a fender roller, its called a bat...

Thanks for the replys, any other thoughts? Just read MFE's post and read the link to MM and their thoughts..

If you're planning on running CMC, read the rules carefully. An SN95 K-member in a Fox chassis may not (and probably isn't) legal. Remember, the CMC rules state what you CAN do, not what you cannot.

Then again, if you're wanting to build a race car, I HIGHLY recomend buying a used one instead fo building one yourself. It'll cost you an 1/3 what building one will...

Yep, thats how I have so many left over parts, from building my NASA TT car. The 1994 that donated the K member has the full MM treatment, Just trying to use the BETTER leftovers in this Fox... Thanks
