Hey guys i just ran across this forum for the unibodys. Awesome!! Well i have a 62 Unibody that i have been messing with for about a year now.. Between kids baseball and cheerleading they keep me running and broke all the time.. I installed a 2004 crown vic front end out of a police interceptor ( 5x4.5) and now i need a rear end to match. I have heard of people using a rear end out of a 96-98 explorer and ones from a crown vic. Anyone have any comments on what would fit better (width wise)? Anyone have any pictures of these installs..Thanks For the help... I went to the lonestar Roundup in Austin this weekend and only saw about 4 unis out there so I'm pumped to get mine going...
Thanks elgemcdlf for the info. I have not ran across one of those swaps before it looks like it would ride amazing compared to the traditional solid axle , spring setup... I ll do some more reading on your build to see what all is completely involved in it.
When I started on my journey I decided wheels would just be something custom built for the truck when finished. A note on the MN12 IRS. The bolt circle is 5x4.25. You can swap in hubs from a Cobra IRS with the rotors. You will also need a set of brackets that move the calipers out to clear the larger rotors. I also have a list of rotors that should work with the 4.5 circle & stock caliper location.
