everyone tells me that the 99 cobra wheels will not go on the front because of the grease cap, its seems like maybe there is a market here to make some special grease caps?

I have seriously been thinking about upgrading to Corba brakes up front. I don't really care about the ABS, with Cobra brakes, you don't need it.

If you're switching to SN95 spindles and such to do your 5-bolt conversion you won't have any problems with the dust caps. If you use the spindles from an ABS equipped car you can also retain functional ABS as well.

I ordered the spindles and hubs (used) today for $100, the cobra front kit is $670, this is what i will eventually do. For now the Lincoln rotor kit was the cheapest way to go 5 lug and get me back on the road.

The Brembo super kit is $1400, I can do two cars with cobra fronts for that price!

$100 for the pair of spindles and hubs is a good price. I have SN-95 spindles on both my cars...but they are 83-84's. I lucked out on both of my brake set-ups pricewise. I have some from a Cobra on the 83 and some from a 2001 GT (2-piston PBR caliper/11" rotor) on the 84 XR7...total price....$0.00...well, I guess $30 if you count the new pads for the XR7....I lost one of the factory ones..
