Yes, a hubswap is possible, in fact many on here have done it. Just do a search for "hubswap". The front is a simple install new Mustang hubs instead of T-Bird hubs. the rear you have to have Cobra hubs pressed in. And you will of course need Mustang Brake rotors for the front, and have your rear rotors re drilled. to the Mustang pattern

Those Cobra R's are very very common in the aftermarket. Surely someone makes them in the MN12 bolt pattern. I hear of them being had new for $400 total, but beware of those low quality wheels.

When I do the swap, I have most of the parts for the front end.
For the rear, I know that I have to mod the knucles ( need to know detailed info on that). I want to use the mustang hubs,rotors, and possibly the calipers on the rear.
Can you tell me what years and type mustang to use for the rear swap?

Also, I want to use ford mustang rims like the bullitt style. I was thinking of the bullitt 17X8's. I'm not to keen on the offset can you recommend me what sizes and years, etc.
Thanks so far for all the great help

they are made in tbird bolt pattern but they aren't being made anymore so only way is used. but you might as well do the hub swap and get pbr brakes as well while you're tearing **** apart

The Cobra Wheel is pretty common in the MN12 pattern. I used to have a set myself as a matter of fact. If you want detailed and accurate info on the wheels (or if you want to buy a set) contact Cudaz on this site. He has the custom wheel shop you see advertised in the upper right hand corner here.

And there are several threads on here about the hub swap, just gotta do a search.
