    Tried to put my wheels on and the brake caliper bolt head is preventing the wheels to be placed on. I thought i was able to do this without wheel spacers. All 91 TC parts.

    Driver's side I bet? Just skim your grinder along the corners of the caliper bolts. Doesn't take much, you'll have enough left to still put a wrench on it, don't worry. I wish I would have seem this post, I just had everything apart to put new upper ball joints on, I would have taken a pic

    Beating a dead horse here but haven't really gotten a clear answer. On +03 Grand Marquis can you do the spindle swap or am I stuck with shaving the caliper and a spacer?

    Sorry for the old bump, but I did some searching and I couldn't get a clear answer
    Some may not like my style, but the better get used to it cause im not changing it

    Mr. Cucho... I have 15x8 Wire wheels... not 13. lol thanks homie! I tried 1/4 spacers... rims still touchin caliper. So, I guess I will do spindle swap on my car. I noticed that it hard to find 90-94 spindles! BUT, I found some at junkyard and not sure which I should get spindles WITH ABS or WITHOUT ABS?? Is there something else I need to know about spindle swap? I mean I know need caliper, rotors, pads, spindles, ball joints. What about brake line? Once Spindle swap done, will there be any notices different once it all complete? Been thinkin about gettin me 18" reverse wire wheels if I finally sell/trade/and or return my 15x8. Still not plan to hop my car lol. just ridin Slow & Low.

    The reason they do fit on the rear is beacuse the calipers are smaller then the front ones !!!! Once again I will just get a set of 15x7 n just a little grinding on the front calipers n u be good to roll !!! Or if some else has a better idea or more info put ur cents on this topic for the homie 98blulincoln!!!

    Hey Yall, I'm still planning on swap spindles on my 98 with 93... I re read all it to make sure. Just realized about Sway bar... it won't fit huh? it said can ditch it which I don't want to ditch and rather keep it to keep my ride smooth. Plus I'm not plan on add hopper to my car YET. It my daily drive plus I don't use my wire wheels ALL year round. Only start few weeks after spring TO end of fall. Can that sway bar custom weld to make it fit for 93 spindles? Plus I also see that everyone said swapping spindle will fit 13s and 14s so I ASSUMED it will fit 15x8 just fine. But back offset? Honest, I just afraid not want to wasted all my time, energy, and money if ALL does not success. I think might be easier if I just sell my 15x8 wire wheels and buy me 18x8 standard or possible Reverse wire wheels and SHOULD fit on fine?? without any of pain-in-ass modification and goes wasted. I felt like I'm losing interest. Thanks yall homies for help.
