I know the ABS exciter rings are why the 87-88 TC rears are so much wider , but what makes the SVO rear even wider that that?

Either way , like I said, go for the 87-88 Tc rear.

the svo rear brake setup came on other lincolns beside the mark VII. the brakes where used from the lincoln on the svo, hence the wider track width. if you want to upgrade to a 8.8 all you need is the housing, everything else just drops in or bolts up.

90 mustang GT (project scratch and dent)
69 mustang coupe (well at least this one runs...um, well)
86 turbo coupe (the other white meat)
86 SVO (20lbs. of shit in a 1oz. bag)
...so you have a V8...isn't that cute...

I already have an 87 TC rear in my car with the disc brakes. I want to use the caliper braket that pulls the brakes in more and use the shorter axles. I guess they only came with the Motorsport kit and on the 93 Cobra.

ANyone know if SN95 brakets will work?

GT350- Why do you say the 87-88 axles are longer? They should be the same as the rest of the TBirds which are the same as the 93 Cobra and the 94+ Mustangs. The axles in the back of my XR7 (84) are from a 95 or 96. I knocked the ABS rings off them and slid them into the 7.5 with no other changes...except for drilling the drums to the 5-lug pattern. I think you would've had the same problem with the wheels sticking out a bit more than you like if you used an earlier TC axle.
The SN-95 brackets would put the brake in pretty much the same place as it is now. You would need some of the brackets from the old Motorsports kit or maybe something from SSB that would use the shorter axles. The 93 Cobra stuff won't help you either...same as the 87-88 TC, which is the same as the 94+ Mustangs..(diff caliper though)..yada, yada....

Sorry, it is in my Mustang, not my T-bird. So yeah , they are longer.

Anyone know where I can find the brakets for sale?
