SN-95 and the new edge are basically the same car. AFIK the only difference was the facelift. From what I've heard, Ford own internal documents referred to all 94-2004's as SN-95's. Actually, the original code name for the sn-95's was the fox-4 platform because it was a major overhaul of the original fox but still a fox at it's core, that's why so many parts interchange. At some point Ford decided to change it to sn-95, why, IDK

All fox body cars, and SN-95's have a major bump steer problem from the factory. The problem gets worse when you lower the car. The only real fix is a bump steer eliminator kit.

Can you get a pic of the caliper brackets? I'm looking for some twin piston calipers for my sedan

Yes I can. Do you need a measurement on the holes too?

Upon further review, the change actually took place in 96 rather than 99. Either way, it did change. If you look where the tie rod attaches, you will notice that the 94/95 knuckle in the background takes a jaunt upwards before going out, and the 98-04 goes straight out. This is the main difference I was referring to.

Here you go Dustin. I measure 5 1/4" on these, center to center.

Last night I picked up both front brake hoses on Rock Auto for 17 bucks shipped. They have their Raybestos Professional Grade hoses on clearance. I will next need to get an adapter for one side.... which I don't know what side yet. But either way, I need this fitting from Maximum Motorsports.
