    I think he's wanting to do a rear disk brake conversion on a Lincoln. Not sure what year etc. Hopefully he'll post the whole story here soon.

    But i don't know any of the measurements and they don't offer a conversion kit for my car, checked summit and a bunch of other places. Some people say it has the same rear end of a mustang but what year? Or would i need to find a lincoln? I have no idea. My car has a 5.0 engine stock. I haven't modified anything in it. Everything I've replaced I've kept stock.

    Stop tagging me. I have no fuggin clue. Mark VIII is nothing like a Crown Vic. You prolly need a rear end from a newer Vic that already has all the hardware.

    So i read everything, pretty helpful. Tried to register (and did) at crownvic.net but the problem is i can't post anything till my membership is "approved" whatever that means. In other words I am now a member but it won't let me log in. It's a shame since apparently almost everybody on there has already done the swap. Anyway i had a question about what i read... wouldn't i be able to just order the parts for the conversion as if i was getting them as replacement parts for a newer model car with existing rear discs and then just adapt everything onto mine? I know the E brake would need some customization, but other than that............ ???

    Yes... and often you can find threads that list the part numbers. That's what I did when I upgraded the front brake system on my truck.
