I agree, Kent.......far too much goin' on!!  [Image: confused0016.gif]

At least the number of Americans likely to succumb to this Chinese-born pandemic will apparently be far lower than projected........which is a GOOD thing, but it won't bring back those who've paid the ultimate price.  Sad

     I hope it turns out that way......but I think it’ll get worse before it gets better. It seems to take 10 days to run its course so there will be a certain number of those that tested positive in the last 1-2 weeks that will pay the ultimate price in the coming 1-2 weeks, and that’s a large number of positives.....it’s still spreading in southern states and the Midwest.

Found this of the SVT forum.
“but BAER Brakes makes a conversion kit for the fox body to use SN95 Spindles and remain 4 lug.... only thing is the cost is about the same as just doing a 5 lug conversion.”

You'll also find the center hub OD to be bigger (70.5mm vs 63.4mm). You'd also need to machine your 4-lug wheels to get them to bolt up.

The bolt patterns overlap so drilling will require welding on at least one hole. Looking at the SN95 front bearing and hub assembly, that obviously would hard to do without compromising the bearing and/or hub. If the bearing was available separately then it would be straightforward for someone with the capability to machine a custom hub with the Fox3 wheel pattern.

I went through a similar hassle about five years ago looking for ways to upgrade the brakes on my Pinto without doing a five-lug swap. Even though the Granada rotor and variants of it are the basis for nearly every disc brake conversion for small and midsize Fords from the '60s and '70s, including brake upgrades for Mustang IIs, absolutely none of them are available with 4 x 4.25" bolt pattern. Not even rotor blanks are offered off-the-shelf by anyone. I ended up doing a full five-lug conversion.
