I am looking at getting a set of 2004 MACH 1 wheels with stock rubber, for 400.00 I have read allot of these threads, seems to be an infinite number of combinations of brakes and wheel selections, all with what seems to be unique problems with each, i.e.; tires sticking out to much, and not to mention tire size, wheel size, fender rub, lowered, not lowered. Looking at the Late Model Resto catalog www.50resto.com
they sell a M2300 kit for 2000.00 they also sell a basic 5-lug conversion kit for 400.00
Question: They state that if the MACH 1 rims are being used on a FOX, the M2300 kit must be used true/false? I have also heard and read on this web site somewhere that a standard 5-lug conversion will work, hence the 400.00 kit with drums. Whatâ€™s the gouge here?
My 91 LX is lowered with the standard eibachs, approx 1.25 front 1.0 rear. I have installed the MM lower control arms, and the factory uppers from MM as well, and yes, the rear does seem sloppy after this install. I have MM CC plates with the castor knocked all the way back â€“ donâ€™t know what the setting is, I did it in the garage! Made the steering feel 100 percent better. It drives straight, feels ok in the corners.
Comments, questions, items of consideration?
