Post 94/95 or 96+ spindles? Darius?

There's so much mis-information on the subject, and I know you've had both...

What's the difference, and why did you choose the 96+?

I know the 96+ has a straight steering arm, but if you're using a bumpsteer kit anyway, would the 94/95 do?

Does the 96+ move the wheel out 1/4"?

I just ordered take-off 99-01 GT PBR calipers from stangparts, includes brackets & lines for $99 /pair, great deal! When I get the spindles, I'll just have to grind them a little to clearance the larger twin-piston caliper. But what spindle?

I've got the 99 cobra wheels waiting to go on. I'll do a SN95 rear disk setup, and use a larger bore svo/lincoln MC. I'm considering a manual rack too...

Also, are you removing the spacers under you're cc plates? The strut/spindle mount is lower, so you might find that the fox3 strut isn't long enough at full extension/droop... just something else to check.

The 96+ spindles move the hub out 1/2" more then the SN95s.

I had the 95 spindles with the M2300K brake s I bought. Then, I wanted to get some brake backing plates to funnel air and _enclose_ (seal) the back of the rotor to this plate to FORCE air THRU the rotor (not just aim air AT the rotor...). That deal fell thru (guy promised a lot and delivered none). Pretty pissed, cause I spent money to get new spindles, and machining all over again, not to get any further.
That in mind, I needed the 96+ spindles cause of the arm position (as you mentioned). Thats it. Not really for any more acherman, or moving outward of 8mm (1/3") more.

Thanks for the info...

Are the 96+ arms longer than the 94/95 (for increased ackerman)?

I'm just wondering if they might steer a litle easier with a manual rack...

(refering to the steering arm... maybe not obvious).
