o.k. i am going to try this again, 90 lx, changing old 10 hole wheels to ponies off of a 94, which rotors will work and which axles, someone from here told me last time 94-95 rotors(they dont work) anyway i am being told 89 lincoln mark 4 rotors and ranger axles but he didnt know which side axle to use (driver or passenger) apparently they are two different lengths. also will 255/50/16 fit all the way around or do i have to use 245's.

From an '83 to '92 4 cylinder or 3.0L V6 Ranger/Bronco II with a 7.5" rear end you will need two driver's side axles but you can use an '86-97 Aerostar passenger side axle too. Use the 9" drums (I think it was the 4.0L Ranger that had 8.8"s and 10" drums which wont work).

For fronts, the '94-5 front v6 or v8 assemblies are the prefered method (using spindle, rotor and caliper). Using Mark VII rotors may cause a problem with clearances between the rotor hat and the dust cap and the wheel (not sure about the wheels you are using but they wont work with Cobras without like a 1/2" spacer).

o.k. i used '89 mark VII rotors, had to cut the abs ring off due to it hitting the dust shield otherwise no problems bearings and seals are the same also, also no problems with dust cap hitting. monday i am going to the salvage yard to get the axles called about 1:30 they said they had two off of the aerostar i didnt make it there before they closed because i wanted to take an old one and i did not get them out in time. is $50 a piece fair, they are used. i got the rotor from my friend who has a brake shop, he only had one in stock, his price $36, no big deal i call advance auto parts they say $103, called the zone $53. so i wait til monday on the other rotor. also no one had axle bearings or seals what the hell, hopefully monday all goes well and i have it all together. one more thing i know blah blah blah, how much oil does the rear end hold, and do i need to get additive.
