Has anyone used the rotors from an LMR 5 lug conversion kit?

On my last foxbody I used LMR’s brake drums, the brake drums were out of round out of the box. I wasn’t impressed. When I did my first 5 lug conversion, I used the complete spindle, hub, rotor and caliper assemblies from an SN95 Mustang and it worked out perfectly. If the LMR rotors are decent it would save me the extra effort required with the SN95. Any thoughts on using the LMR rotors?

Yeah all they are is Lincoln mark 7 rotors . You’re limited in wheel selection because most center caps won’t fit with the dust cap.

No brake upgrade either at that point . I’d do the sn95 stuff and the brake upgrade personally

No benefit with LMR other than 5 lug. Wheel selection will suck because of the center dust cap.( like mentioned ). 94- 95 Sn95 is the way to go.

They are just Mark 7 rotors like said. You just get the 5th lug.

Sn95 conversion all the way. One of the favorite mods I ever did to my car

I am about to go down this same journey with LMR kit - your vote is to not do the basic 5 lug but rather jump in and the SN95 out of the gate yea?

well yeah, like the story goes, you are limited on wheel selection.
There is more stuff to do with the sn95 upgrade but well worth the extra effort.

I’m fine with the extra work - I’d rather do it right once and sounds like for the 5 lug effort doing the SN95 is the way to go.

The LMR kit seems complete, do you have experience with it?

You don’t want the basic kit . It doesn’t give you the brake upgrade . You don’t want the spindles they give you. You want 94-95 specific spindles . Read that thread for a few hundred less you get all the parts needed and upgraded stuff too .
