Well, finally finished the 5 lug conversion/brake upgrade to my FOX and they don't feel right - waaay to spongy, can't even get the brakes to lock up.

Here are the details:

1988 Mustang Notch
Tubular Kmember and A-arms
1995 Mustang GT front brakes (spindles, rotors, calipers)
New Brake pads
Stock rubber brake lines
5 lug drum rear brakes (new pads)
stock master cylinder
stock prop valve

What can I do? I have bled the front brakes until I didn't see any more air.
Any advice would be appreciated...

Thanks,

bleed them all. start farthest from the master cylinder, ie. right rear, then left rear, right front, left front

good luck:)

Matt is right, the 88 MC has a different bore ect. than the new ones made to run with the new calipers...
