Video: Installing SVE Drag Wheels on a Fox Body Mustang
Published on 2013-09-12
Watch as we install a set of 15x10 SVE Drag Wheels on this Fox Body Mustang. See what modifications are needed for clearance with 275/50/15 tires. The perfect set up for a weekend of drag racing in your Stang!!
We're going to show you what it takes to put a set of SVE drag wheels on your '87 to '93 Fox Mustang. First thing you'll need to do is convert to five lug using something like our Fox style rotor and drum five lug conversion kit, available at latemodelrestoration.com.
The 15 inch wheels will bolt right on over the Fox style rotor conversion, along with the SN95 '94 to '04 V6 and GT brakes. If you're running SN95 Cobra brakes, you will need 17 inch front wheels.
To fit a 15 x 10 with a 275 50 15 tire on the back of your Fox, you will absolutely have to remove the quad shock. Then you can mount the wheel up and lower the car down to ride height, and check the inner wheel well for clearance. Every car is a little different, and on ours, we did have to massage the front inside of the wheel well.
The outer fender lip will need to be rolled. There's several different ways to do this. Pick your poison. Just be sure not to mess up your paint.
Bolt your wheels up, and enjoy the aggressive look that set of SVE drag wheels will give your Fox Mustang.

0:00:00 - 0:00:31 There are more ways to convert your 87-93 Fox Body Mustang to 5 lug than you can count on one hand. One of the many ways is this Fox style five lug conversion kit from LatemodelRestoration.com. It uses Fox style 5 lug front brake rotors Fox length rear axles with 5 lug brake drums that are compatible with your stock rear drum brake setup. It also includes the needed axle studs, front wheel bearings, grease seals, gear oil, just about everything you need so you can throw it on your car. We’re going to show you step-by-step what's required to install this on your 87-93 Mustang.
0:00:31 - 0:01:06 To start out our 5 lug swap, support your car in the air and remove all the wheels. We'll begin with the front by removing the brake caliber. Pop off the dust cap. Remove the cotter pin, nut retainer, nut spacer washer and outer wheel bearing. You can then slide your old rotor of the spindle. Go ahead and clean up all the old grease off the spindle as well as of the nut, spacer washer out of the grease cap and the retainer. Grab your new rotor.
0:01:06 - 0:01:47 Wipe down there bearing races with brake cleaner. Pack the area in between the bearing races with grease and smear some grease on the bearing races. Pack your wheel bearings with your choice a wheel bearing grease. We decided to use Royal Purple. Install you’re inside wheel bearing followed by the new grease seal. Smear some grease on the spindle. Slide the rotor into place. Slide in your outer wheel bearing, followed by the spacer washer and nut. Tighten and loosen the retaining nut several times while rotating the rotor to fully see the bearings.
0:01:47 - 0:02:223 Once you feel the bearings are fully seated. Tighten the nut and loosen it by one flat. Rotate the nut retainer around until it you can clearly see the cotter pin hole. Install your cotter pin. Pack some new grease inside the bearing dust cap. Install the cap into the brake rotor. Slide you caliber back into place and bolt it down. Repeat this for the other side. Moving on to the rear. Remove the 10 cover bolts. You will want to grab you an oil drain pan and remove the rear cover.
0:02:23 - 0:02:53 Slide your drums off. Rotate your axle around to where you can access the cross pin retaining bolt. Remove the cross pin retaining bolt. Remove the cross pin. Slide one axle inward and remove the c clip. Do this for the other side. Remove both rear axles. Grab your new axles and the included 10 wheel studs. There are several different ways to install these wheel studs. The tried and true method is to hammer them into place. When using the stock wheel studs it doesn't take a whole lot of effort.
0:02:53 - 0:03:17 If you're using aftermarket style ARP long wheel studs, you will need to enlarge the holes on the axle flange and use a hydraulic press. Slide your new axles in the housing being careful not to damage the outer oil seal. Slide 1 axle all the way inward. Engage the c clip and push it back out till it locks in place. Do this for the other axle. Reinstall your cross pin and the cross pin retaining bolt.
0:03:17 - 0:04:00 Thoroughly clean the face of the axle housing along with the differential cover. We always recommend using one of our reusable differential gaskets. Now we don't have any RTV silicone mess. Reinstall the rear differential cover. Tightening down all 10 bolts. Remove the fill plug from the front axle housing. Start filling the housing with oil. On the second bottle I normally put in about half the bottle. Then add the bottle of Ford Racing friction modifier to the remaining half bottle of oil. Finish filling the axle. Apply some thread sealer to the fill plug and reinstall the fill plug. Slide your new brake drums into place.
0:04:00 - 0:04:23 Install your new wheels and lower the car onto the ground. Of course the perfect finishing touch to any 4 to 5 lug conversion is a new set a 5 lug wheels. We chose to go with a set of our chrome SVE Drag Wheels. Man do they look MEAN!
